Mayweather vs Mosley
Sat, 17 Apr 2010
Who R U Picking? That is the question on everyone's minds when it comes to the match-up between Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Sugar Shane Mosley which is set to take place May 1 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas and live on HBO Pay-Per-View®. While this mega-fight is fast approaching, the avid sports enthusiast Mayweather is still keeping a close eye on the NBA Playoffs set to kick off this Saturday. The king of the ring took time to share his thoughts on Kobe, King James and second year sensation Kevin Durant.
"I don't want to pick a winner right now, but all I know is the West is really tough," said Mayweather. "As far as players go I feel that Kobe deserves to be called the best and is the number one player in the NBA because he has the championships and showed he can win without Shaq."
"Next I would have to say Kevin Durant is amazing as he is so consistent and got his team to the Playoffs in only his second year. Lebron is great too. He has tremendous commercials and is so tough. It is going to be a tight Playoff run for any team and I just wish all the athletes the best. At that level, they are all great athletes."
While Mayweather would not give away his picks, he added:
"I don't bet on boxing or myself but I do bet on basketball and football. It's going to be a tough Playoff series and I am looking forward to making some money on it too."
