2010 ESPYs: LeBron James gets booed | Pacquiao loses to Mayweather Jr

NBA star LeBron James wasn't arround at the 2010 ESPY Awards (the ESPYs) held in Los Angeles, but he got booed by the audience. How did
it happen?

The audience booed LeBron James while his name was being mentioned and he was shown in a clip as a nominee for Best Male Athlete. For sure, that's still in connection with his decision to join Miami Heat.

And the sadder part for LeBron was, he lost the award. The Best Male Athlete award went to football player
Drew Brees, who was the night's big winner, also winning Best Championship Performance, Best NFL Player and as member of New Orleans Saints who won as Best Team.

In the ESPY Best Fighter category, Floyd Mayweather Jr scored a "punch"
against Manny Pacquiao and won the award. Last year, the Filipino
pound-for-pound King received that same honor.
