Celebrity Baby Trends loves to see kids active and happy, and that’s why we love Nickelodeon‘s Kids Choice Sports. This year, the awesome Chris Paul – Houston Rockets’ point guard and former NBA All-Star MVP – is hosting the show. This is THE show where kids get actively involved and celebrate their favorite athletes and the year’s most unforgettable sports moments in a superstar sports showdown. This must-see event will air Sunday, July 22nd, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
Nominations will be announced in June on KCS2018.com, and kids will be able to cast their votes for their favorite athletes and all-star moments from the past year. After voting, there will be all-star polls, sports-themed short-form videos, trivia, photos and more for kids to explore online. AND, on July 22, kids will have the chance to play along and root for their favorite athletes during the show on KCS2018.com.
Chris Paul says he grew up on Nickelodeon and now loves watching it with his kids. And, this year, he promises to bring the fun, the slime and the most epic stunts in Kids’ Choice Sports history. We can’t wait!
Since its inception in 2014, Kids’ Choice Sports has garnered some of the biggest names in sports from hosts Michael Strahan and Russell Wilson to Legend Award recipients David Beckham, Kobe Bryant, Derek Jeter and Michael Phelps. Over the years, the blimps have been presented to: Laurie Hernandez, LeBron James, Rob Gronkowski, Dez Bryant, Lindsey Vonn, Danica Patrick, Carmelo Anthony, Gabby Douglas, Alex Morgan, Dwyane Wade, Stephen Curry, Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Trout, Serena Williams, Usain Bolt, Simone Biles and others.
The slime-soaked celebration has also featured one-of-a-kind challenges with top athletes from across the world of sports: U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team champions Carli Lloyd and Abby Wambach sped through the finish line first against Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green and Klay Thompson during a tricycle relay race (2015); DeAndre Jordan (Los Angeles Clippers) and Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons) scaled Slime Mountain, battled obstacles and slid their way to victory (2017); and Golden State teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson faced off in the Big Slime Ballers Challenge, a three-point contest where each shot triggered slime-filled nets above kid-rebounders (2016).
