NBA champion LeBron James knows there’s no doubting Floyd Mayweather Jr.‘s greatness. The Cleveland Cavaliers leader recently talked about Money Mayweather’s headline-generating pay-per-view fight against UFC champion Conor McGregor.
Approached by paparazzi, both King James and his teammate J.R. Smith gave their take on the bout.
TMZ Sports was right outside the T-Mobile Arena when we spotted Bron and Cavs teammate J.R. Smith breaking down the fight.
LeBron: “You gotta respect [McGregor].”
Smith: “The thing is he came out strong in the beginning of every round. He burnt himself out.”
LeBron: “You gotta respect him though because he ain’t no boxer. Tough as a motherf**ker though.”
Smith’s retort was hilarious — “Sh*t, give me $30 million! I’d be tough too for 30 minutes!”
LeBron: “I’m dropping in the 1st round. I ain’t lasting 10.” (TMZ)
Yesterday, both Rick Ross and Desiigner celebrated Floyd’s historic 50th win.
