Westbrook, Durant take home ESPY awards

From the jokes by host Peyton Manning to the stories of inspiration by sports fans such as Jarrius Robertson, there were plenty of smiles — and even some tears — at the 25th ESPYS on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Many of the world’s best athletes packed into Microsoft Theater for the annual awards show, and by night’s end, some familiar names took center stage.

One of them was Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook, who was named best male athlete, adding to the NBA MVP trophy he won in New York a few weeks ago.
