(Newser) – In a way, LeBron James was the star of last night's ESPY awards. No, he didn’t actually win anything, but he was on the receiving end of the most jokes, Time reports. In addition to the Steve Carell and Paul Rudd spoof above—in which the big decision was where to go for dinner, causing Carell to declare, “I am going to take my appetite to the Outback Steak House”—there were a bunch of barbs from host Seth Myers.

“Did it really have to be an hour?” the Saturday Night Live player asked. “Somebody time me. Miami. How long did that take?” But cheer up Cleveland: “Literally every team that has ever won an NBA championship has done it without LeBron James.” Tiger Woods was also the butt of his share of jokes. “We all know which free agent is making the most money this summer,” Myers said, “Elin Nordegren.” By the way, Drew Brees won male athlete of the year. For the list of other winners, go to ESPN.
