Hannibal Buress Travels Back in Time From 2026 at the ESPYs Wearing ‘Stephen Curry 34s’

The 2016 ESPYs had no shortage of touching, emotional moments.

LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and Dwyane Wade called for an end to senseless violence. The family of Zaevion Dobson—a 15-year-old high school football player who died shielding two young women from gunfire—accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award on his behalf. TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager gave an inspirational speech in the face of cancer.

But the sports awards ceremony had its share of comedic high points as well.

And while I have to commend John Cena for building on the comedy chops he showed off in Trainwreck, the funniest schtick of the night belonged to comedian Hannibal Buress, who "traveled back in time" from the year 2026.

A lot will have apparently changed by then: The Washington Redskins finally change their name, but still can't quite get it right; Skip Bayless has a new, LeBron-centered show; Shaquille O'Neal wins an Oscar for Kazaam 2; And Stephen Curry doubles down on his "dad shoes."
