    i just really don't think a lot of people get it. Pacquiao's not my favorite fighter, but i respect the hell out of him..the guy has been through it. dirt poor growing up..literally..bare feet on the dirt. and while Mayweather beefs with his dad and disrespects him time and time again..Pacquiao's dad left his family when he was just a toddler. for him to be as cool and as gracious as he is a miracle..thank God he can get in the ring, whip ass and take out some demons there..who knows what he'd be doing if he didn't have that outlet.

    when boxers get to the level of boxing that those two are at, they start to measure heart and study the origins of opponents. a lot of people don't know Pacquiao's background and how he's been toughened since he was a youth..however, i don't think Mayweather is one of those people. i think Mayweather is not only aware of the talent, but also very aware of what Pacquiao represents, hence the dodging all these years. Mayweather's own dad gave up the goods regarding Floyd's uncertainty.

    anyway, check out the fight below. maybe you've seen it before, but some funny things from it..1) you'll see Derek Jeter in the crowd smiling and in a replay of a knockdown he's kinda lookin like " OMG! " while Pacquiao is in the midst of attacking Cotto. Lol 2) later on the fight, in the final few rounds when Cotto is just basically running for his life, the commentators get bored and start talking about what?..you guessed it..a damn Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. and yes this fight is from 5yrs ago. it will truly disgust you even more than Cotto's face to hear them talking about it..

    Agreed. It baffles me that anyone could be a fan of Floyd. The guy is an egocentric asshole who is ignorant as hell outside of the ring.

    At this point, I think he's just trying to get that scoring title.

    TBH, a lot of that stuff doesn't even really bother me, bro. i know that some of it is to promote himself and whatever. Ali did a lot of that in his day..some of the stuff he couldn't do back then of course and then everything is magnified today. but yea, there are some things that Mayweather should STFU about..like his comments on domestic abuse a little while back. he's truly ignorant in various aspects of society.

    however, i don't even expect him to be knowledgeable or righteous. he's a dumb boxer..if you get one of those guys that is aware and has some sense, it's icing on the cake, imo. Lennox Lewis, Ali, Foreman, Ray Leonard, Pacquiao..there are others too..they all have sense. what i hold against Mayweather is his ducking and dodging Pacquiao. you have to fight the best and it's not good enough to wait until the both of you are old. you don't get to claim to be the greatest, or in the conversation with the greatest, if you deliberately evade your generation's greatest competition and a certain hall of famer.

    watching that hack pitbull perform at halftime of the eagles/cowboys game makes me yearn for the days when musical artists actually used to sing

    Yeah, I almost threw up listening to that crap. There are still some people out there with talent but they're not recognized because they don't grab their private parts and yell out the same 10 words with 5 of them consisting of cuss words when they perform.

    Of course he isnt
    Im sure he knows this.
    He can most likely feel it physically
    But he maintains the mamba mindset that makes him so great
    The guy is nearly 50 and he's dropping 30 each night (although shooting a low FG%) to prove that he can still do it
    I want to give him at least 25 games to get back into NBA shape/Rhythm
    Those shots will start to fall, he'll play more within himself/the offense
    Also have to factor in the shitty team, with no second option
    He's just shooting because why not
    He could easily put up 20ppg 6 ast 6 rebs while shooting 50% but theres no point lol
    Might as well go for the scoring title and miss the shots that would be missed anyways by the other players

    Get him 2 other GOOD players. Like even Deron Williams to play PG
    and another player and he can have less pressure ansd easily put up 25 5 5 with 47% FG
    Jim Buss is an idiot who needs to leave

    Floyd is a business man before a boxer
    I dont hate him for it
    I think he'll fight Pacquaio in his last fight (and beat him)
    Might not be as exciting since they'll likely be out of their prime
    but it'll still let Floyd cash out like crazy

    So what if the Raiders were able to get Suh AND Dez?

    All they would need is a running game, a shut down DB and Jon Gruden.

    Team has been in a let down in every big game past 3 years. Done a great job getting there in an underdog role, but once they shed that, completely falter pathetically

    Great time to be a UCLA, Dodger, Laker, raider fan! Add USC to complete an LA feeling and wooooooooo
