Floyd Mayweather Rumors
But as has been the case for Isaiah Thomas throughout his life, there were plenty of unexpected moments along the way, including the April death of his sister, Chyna. “There was no option of not playing,” Thomas said. “That’s just what I was going to do, no matter what. The people that helped me were my family — my parents, my close friends, the Celtics organization, Brad Stevens, coaching staff, my teammates and so many guys reached out. Floyd Mayweather, Tom Brady, Kobe Bryant. I remember Kobe texting me and calling me and telling me nobody can tell you what to do, but if you do play then play to be the killer that you are and leave it all out there on the floor. I took that to heart.”
Paul George is still thinking about that Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight he saw in Las Vegas as he prepares for his NBA season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He let his fans know how excited he is in a video posted to Instagram that he took while on a run in Calabasas, California. He said: “I feel like Floyd out here. Getting ready for this season, baby. Ya’ll ready? IS YA’LL READY? Thunder up.” IMGhttps://www.instagram.com/p/BYcR9hvBr7t/
Asked by ESPN if he’s into fantasy football, Mayweather replied that while he’s not into it, he’s into gambling and plans to stop doing so once he secures an NBA team. “As soon as a I get an NBA team, I’m going to stop betting. I’m [walking] away from betting.” Told to expand on what he said, Mayweather implied that the only real cure to his gambling is owning an NBA team. “You can’t bet when you own an NBA team so I look forward to getting an NBA team in the future. So once I get an NBA team, I’m going to no longer bet.”
Draymond Green took to Instagram to complain about Conor McGregor wearing a No. 23 Golden State Warriors jersey. That’s the number he wears, of course, for the championship-winning team. Green said “We rockin with Floyd bro not you… take that off bruh.” But McGregor wasn’t wearing a Green jersey, it was an old C.J. Watson one.
That led to McGregor telling Green he didn’t know who he was. Then he told him to to stay in school. Oh my! Green is a two-time NBA champion! But that wasn’t it, because McGregor is extra as hell. So he told Green that he “Dribbles heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here kid.”
Big3 officials received a “generous offer” as part of an agreement to move the inaugural 3-on-3 title game across Las Vegas Boulevard to make way for the mega fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor at T-Mobile Arena on Aug. 26. Big3, Ice Cube’s professional basketball league, had a contract to hold its championship at 1:30 pm local time at T-Mobile Arena. Instead, the game will held at MGM Grand Garden Arena, Big3 officials announced in a news release on Tuesday.
