During his opening monologue, Curry didn't hold back with his jokes. He made it known to everyone that he was the second NBA player to host the awards show. He decided to spice it up by taking a jab at the Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James.

"LeBron James, he hosted this award show back in 2007..." Curry started his opening spiel with some hard-hitting jokes. " After losing in the NBA Finals."
"So, yes, you guessed it. This feels better," Curry said as he confidently took a sip from his glass.

The jokes were all in good fun. Everyone knows both stars have mutual respect for each other. Even with their history of Finals rivalry, both James and Curry have expressed their admiration for one another.

That wasn't the only joke he made last night. He also poked fun at the Boston Celtics. Forward Grant Williams, who was in the audience at the event. He became a victim of Curry's trolling when he was offered a chance to wear one of his rings. Williams took the joke well and just smiled and laughed with the crowd.
