Inside the NBA’s Ernie Johnson gives his Emmy to Stuart Scott’s family

Ernie Johnson is the best.

The best host of a sports show on television. You try to keep the conversation flowing with Charles Barkley around. That’s why he won a Sports Emmy on Wednesday night, as the host of a must-watch NBA show.

He’s also one of the best human beings you’ll ever meet — a cancer survivor who has adopted four children with his wife.

That’s why he gave his Emmy to the family of Stuart Scott, the ESPN anchor who died of cancer this year. It was vintage Johnson, classy and handled in the perfect way.

This ended up stealing the show.
