#NotImpressed. ESPY Awards host and NFL pro Peyton Manning mocked Kevin Durant during his opening monologue on Wednesday, July 12, and Durant was not impressed.
What the Stars Wore to the ESPYS
The former Broncos quarterback kicked off the ESPYS by cracking a few jokes. While praising the gold medal-winning Final Five team of gymnasts Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian and Aly Raisman, Peyton mocked Durant, telling the crowd that the women were “so dominant” during the summer Olympics that “Kevin Durant wants to play for them next year.”
The camera cut to Durant’s face and the basketball pro couldn’t have looked more displeased.
“I’ve got to tell ya,” Peyton added. “I don’t think he’d start for that team.”

“Sir, that’s going to be $1.50 extra for guac,” one person tweeted, along with a still of Durant — who took home the award for Best Championship Performance — looking unimpressed.
“When mom invites your ex GF to the BBQ,” another person added along with the now-viral screenshot.
