Hosting the ESPYs is no simple task, but Drake, who was the first ESPYs host strictly from a hip-hop background, held his own and had a fair share of memorable moments throughout the night. Here are the top five Drake moments from the 2014 ESPYs.

With the recent news of LeBron James returning to Cleveland, it's no surprise that the ordeal was brought up, but Drake's tear at the entire city of Cleveland was pretty well executed. Drake said that it was an obvious choice for LeBron to head home because $40 million in Miami buys a nice house, whereas $40 million in Cleveland buys you, well, Cleveland.

It was no surprise that the hip-hop artist sang a few numbers, but including Brian McKnight and taking a shot at ex-Clippers owner Donald Sterling highlighted what Drake would say was probably another day at the office. Drake looked a bit uncomfortable at times during his monologue, but relaxed as soon as he was able to do what he does best.

Drake's monologue was very hit and miss, but his best quip was aimed toward the always-controversial Johnny Football. Drake said that he had to turn down taking shrooms with the former Heisman Trophy winner, and once he turned on the ESPYs, he would finally know why. It was definitely one of the brighter moments of his opening segment.

Lance Stephenson was highly criticized for his unusual tactics when trying to shutdown LeBron James in the NBA Playoffs, but Drake's creation of "The Lance Cam" was an absolute classic. It got even better when Stephenson and Drake teamed up in order to mess with Paul George, Stephenson's old teammate.

There's no question that the funniest skit of the night was the "Blake vs. Drake" segment. Watching Blake Griffin disguised as Drake, and vice versa, while trying to dismantle each other's careers was hysterical. It was the one segment that the crowd really seemed to react to and Twitter was buzzing as soon as it was over. When Drake's performance comes up in the future, this is the segment that will be remembered.
