“If it was all about money for me, I would’ve said ‘I don’t care what Manny Pacquiao does, just give me the money, I’ll take it. But it’s me taking a stand for something that means something. And it’s for the fighters who are up and coming. It’s sort of the same stance Martin Luther King and Malcolm X made, so we could have freedoms, so everybody could tell the world that we’re equal. The only thing I’m saying is that we are equal. So if you’re not on nothing and I’m not on nothing, then let’s go take the test. That’s all I’m saying.”
- Floyd Mayweather on comparing himself to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.
Did you hear that noise?
It was Martin and Malcolm rolling over in their graves.

“My motto is very simple. Win a ring for the King.”
- Shaquille O’Neal at his first press conference as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
O’Neal always knew how to say all the right things to win over his new teammates.

“Best receiver to ever play the game. I can’t show my highlights because I don’t own NFL Films, but all my coaches in college, in high school, in junior college, they all told me I could be the best. But they must’ve lied because that title was already given to Jerry Rice. Just because you have stats doesn’t mean you’re the best.”
- Former NFL wide receiver Andre Rison
Now I see why Left-Eye torched your mansion.
Best receiver to ever play the game?
Really, Bad Moon?
But really though?

On the eve of the NBA Finals, Shaquille O’Neal made it no secret who he is rooting for.
O’Neal tweeted today: “I am saying it today and today only, I want kobe bryant to get number four, spread da word.”

“I heard that, but it had kinda been in one in ear out the other. But as the release date gets closer, I’m starting to get a little bit more paranoid, I’m thinking about trying to get my name and likeness pulled off the game entirely. ‘Cause this is bull.”
- Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall on his Madden video game rating changing from 93 to a 68.
Madden knows all things football, including how overrated Hall is at a “shutdown” cornerback.
What’s bull is Hall’s performance since he left the Atlanta Falcons.
Just be glad you’re even in the game, DeAngelo.

- Cleveland Cavaliers guard Mo Williams guaranteeing victory over the Orlando Magic.
An athlete making a guarantee?
Very original, Mo.

“[Tony] Parker got into the teeth of our defense and caused problems. Every time he drives the lane, we have to put him on his back. The first foul has to tell him he’s in for a long night. My first foul Thursday night is going to put him on his back. I guarantee it.”
- Dallas Mavericks center Erick Dampier on his plans for San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker in Game 3 of the NBA Playoffs.
The man who was one dubbed “Ericka” by Shaq is talking about putting someone on their back?
