Floyd Mayweather is eyeing the NBA as soon as he retreats again into retirement.
Mayweather is coaching for one final battle with MMA star Conor McGregor, however as soon as that is completed, the forty nine-time undefeated boxer plans to buy an NBA franchise.
“I look ahead to getting an NBA group sooner or later,” Mayweather informed ESPN. “I do not know the place the group goes to be, however I sit up for having a staff sometime.”
If there’s any athlete that would conceivably personal an NBA franchise, it is the brash boxer who goes by the nickname “Cash.” Mayweather might attain $1 billion in profession earnings relying on the success of his ultimate struggle, in line with Forbes estimates.
However even 10 digits won’t be sufficient. The final group to be bought was the Atlanta Hawks, who went for $850 million in 2015. The NBA has grown in reputation within the two years since, which suggests shopping for a franchise can solely get costlier.
