When you think about it, The ESPYS are just like any other award show.

Except instead of actors and musicians, you have some of the best athletes in the entire world in attendance!

There was certainly no shortage of stars last night as some of the biggest names in sports made their way to the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles for the 20th Annual ESPY Awards!

Michael Phelps, Maria Sharapova, LeBron James, Danica Patrick, and many more athletes showed up to share some laughs and remember some of the most inspirational moments of the past year!

And just because they're athletes does NOT mean they don't know how to work a red carpet!

Ch-ch-check out some of the attendees making their grand entrances (below)!

Maria Sharapova Satisfies Her Need For Speed During A Porshe Photo Shoot!

| Filed under: ZportzMaria SharapovaTennis

Is there anything better than sexy women with fast cars?

The correct answer is obviously, "no!"

That's why the geniuses at Porshe decided to do a photo shoot with the lovely tennis superstar Maria Sharapova!

The Russian beauty posed with some seriously expensive fast cars in Manhattan Beach, and she made sure to wear some VERY short shorts to remind us all that she has some smokin' hot legs!

Thank goodness she didn't hurt them on those slippery courts at Wimbledon!

Maybe this was actually a bad choice by Porshe, because people might be too distracted by Maria to even notice there's a car in the background! LOLz!

That Grigor Dimitrov is one lucky guy!

maria sharapova says slippery grass courts at wimbledon are dangerous

It's been a bizarre year at Wimbledon as we've already seen TONS of shocking eliminations as players have been struggling to stay on their feet on the slippery grass courts, and Maria Sharapova is NOT happy about it!

The Russian tennis beauty ended up on her tush three separate times during her stunning loss to Michelle Larcher De Brito and even had to take a time out after buckling her knee!

Maria put a lot of the blame on

Maria Sharapova Bends It Like Beckham During Practice At Wimbledon!

maria sharapova shows off her soccer skills during practice at wimbledon

Uh-oh! It looks like Maria Sharapova may have forgotten how to play tennis!

Now, we're not the experts here, but isn't there usually a racket involved? And last time we checked, the ball was DEFINITELY not that big!!

Oh well! Maria's the pro, so we'll just have to trust that this is some sort of state-of-the-art training!

The Russian tennis beauty was spotted practicing for her next match at Wimbledon, when she decided to have a little bit of fun and ditched her racket to show off her soccer skills!!

The fact that she's kicking a volleyball around only adds to our confusion, but it's obviously working out for her as she was able to advance to the second round where she'll take on Michelle Larcher De Brito tomorrow!

Who knows, maybe next time we see Maria she'll be practicing her free throw shots to help her serve! LOLz!

Serena Williams Steubenville Rape Comment Apology Tour: Next Stop, Maria Sharapova!

| Filed under: ZportzSerena WilliamsSad SadMaria SharapovaTennis

Serena Williams made some shady comments about the Steubenville rape victim last week, comments that she said were mostly untrue and misconstrued by the reporter who had asked her how she felt about such an awful situation.

Since then, she's been on an apology bender — but less for what was said, more for that the reporter got it wrong (which is totally plausible!). EITHER WAY, she has not only visited the rape victim in person, but she's also apologizing to those sucked into the collateral damage… including her biggest opponent, Maria Sharapova!

You see, when the interview was released, Maria was sucked into the whirlwind just because they're fierce opponents, so everyone thought to badger Maria with questions about things now that Serena was in hot water. It makes sense if you want to sensationalize things, but honestly, Maria shouldn't have been bothered!

Maria ACCEPTED her apology… but then turned around and threw some shade later at her own press conference! She said:

"If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was married and is getting a divorce and has kids."

Ouch!

Come on, quit being petty! You're both professionals — ACT LIKE IT!

Listen to Serena talk about how she reached out to Maria (above)!
