Floyd Mayweather Rumors
Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, who was sitting courtside, spoke to ESPN regarding Curry’s heroics. “He’s a helluva player, a remarkable player,” Mayweather said. “I’m glad that he’s back from his injury. He put on a show with KD out. Golden State is still the team to beat.? Houston?is right there, but the Warriors are still the team everyone is chasing.”
Floyd Mayweather is apparently feeling confident about his basketball skills – so confident that he wants to play 1-on-1 vs. Kobe Bryant for a cool $1 million. The boxer randomly challenged Bryant by commenting on the Laker great’s latest Instagram post days before Christmas.
Hayward appreciates any optimism, but he is reluctant to entertain it, not when he is finally sleeping again. “Wishing to be on the court, trying to be on the court, those are the thoughts that kept me up at night,” he says. Cobbs and Randolph cannot relate to the attention focused on Hayward’s ankle, now protected by a small black brace. According to Google, the most-searched athlete in the United States in 2017 has been Floyd Mayweather. Second is Gordon Hayward. He does not venture out in public often, staying home with Robyn and their daughters, two-year-old Bernie and one-year-old Charlie. The family’s German shepherd, Siber, patrols a backyard ringed with pine trees. But Hayward visited two Boston children’s hospitals this month, and as he sat at bedsides and listened to stories, he felt the patients were doing more for him than he was for them. “Man,” he thought, “I’ve got it made. I just broke my ankle. That’s nothing.”
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.”
