All 3 legends who retired in their respective sports gave their last epic speeches at the 2016 ESPYS after receiving the icon awards. Peyton Manning, Abby Wamback and Kobe Bryant each gave some powerful words about athleticism, being committed as possible and embracing every challenge. Peyton talked about the beauty of being a fan and admiring sport as well as being extremely fortunate to being in the position he has been in. Abby spoke about not wanting to be completely defined by sport but by being appreciated by who she was under her uniform, and speaking up for big causes such as inequality and injustice. Kobe Bryant gave a motivational speech about being relentless and never settling in order to achieve dreams. "We had a dream and let nothing stand in our way. If anything tried to bring us down, we used it to make us stronger. We were never satisfied, never finished, we'll never be retired."
