One of the best boxers in the world, Floyd Mayweather spoke about a recent trip to Las Vegas where he had a successful trip. By "successful" I mean he won $37,000.00 on a bet on the Chicago Bulls.
During an interview with ESPN Chicago, when asked about the NBA and his thoughts, he picked the San Antonio Spurs or the Los Angeles Lakers to come out of the Western Conference:
“At first I was going to bet $100,000 on the first half, but I happened to be asleep because the Atlanta Hawks happened to be on a slump. At this particular time, what’s going on in the NBA right now, Derrick Rose is the leading MVP candidate in the NBA right now I truly believe. I believe in his skills. He’s an amazing player and that’s one of the players you can bet on. If the team can stay 100 percent, they have a good chance to get to the Finals facing probably the Heat in the East. Then in the West this year I think it’s either going to be the Spurs or the Lakers.”
Although I totally disagree about his Lakers pick, seeing how he is a professional boxer, who am I to argue with him.
I don't care if this make Mayweather richer as long as he is right about picking the Spurs and not the Lakers!
I don't know if he knows basketball but he sure knows how to win a bet so if he picks the Spurs to win it all, I guess that is a good thing.
Does he know about basketball? Surprised he picked the SPuRs. All I KNOW is this guy has issues. He IS so SCARED to fight Manny"PACMAN" Pacquaio.
@LFJeremy Pro-Spurs, anti-Lakers comments can only get you so far anyway...
