TORONTO – The 2016 NBA All - Star Game has come and gone, with a weekend spent celebrating Kobe Bryant’s last season in the NBA culminating with a 196-173 win for his Western Conference team over the East. There’s no better way to look back at the weekend that was than to decide who won

Floyd Mayweather’s bankroll is bigger than any athlete collected in any sport over the last decade. TBE, the Biggest Earner. Money buys a lot of toys. A garage full of them. But it doesn’t always buy recognition, or maybe respect.

Mayweather was overlooked by The Associated Press late last year in voting for Male Athlete of the Decade. LeBron James won in what looked to be a slam dunk.

But Mayweather, a slam dunk choice for boxing’s Fighter of the Decade, argues he should been voted the No. 1 athlete for at least the 2010-2019 decade.

“I love LeBron James, but when we talking about Male Athlete of the Decade, that’s me,” Mayweather said during an appearance on Drink Champs, a podcast hosted by N.O.R.E., a hip-hop artist. “That’s me. Hands down.”

Mayweather, who sounds as if he’s got a chip the size of a Ferrari on his shoulder, went  on to say why he thinks he was the best, better than James and better than any of the other contenders – sprinter Usian Bolt, NFL quarterback Tom Brady, swimmer and all-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps and soccer’s Lionel Messi.

“We talking about from 1996 to 2020, and I’ve never received Athlete of the Decade,” Mayweather said. “At the top of Forbes, and I’m my own boss.”

Forget the decades. Mayweather was never voted AP’s Male Athlete of The Year. Any year. Meanwhile, James got the annual award three times – 2013, 2016, and 2018. He won NBA championship rings in Miami and Cleveland. He was the NBA’s Most Valuable Player three times – 2010, 2012 and 2013. Other than beat Conor McGregor, James pretty much did it all during the last decade.

Twins may withdraw from Betts megadeal, Dodgers could be in trouble

  Twins may withdraw from Betts megadeal, Dodgers could be in trouble The three-team trade that would send Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers may be in serious trouble. The Minnesota Twins, the third team in that trade, are reportedly “very pessimistic” about their end of the deal getting done, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The Twins were to send pitcher Brusdar Graterol to the Red Sox and would have received pitcher Kenta Maeda from the Dodgers. The Dodgers were originally sending Maeda to Minnesota in exchange for Graterol, who would have then been flipped to the Red Sox with Alex Verdugo while Betts and David Price went to Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES — This year’s NBA All - Star Weekend was capped off by the league holding it’s 67th All - Star Game here at Staples Center on Sunday night, with Team LeBron emerging with a 148-145 victory over Team Here is a rundown of the winners and losers from this weekend ’s festivities.

8 winners and 4 losers from another great NBA All - Star Game. The new format spiced things up again, we got plenty of highlights, and we got another terrific showcase for the It was a perfect end to an action-packed All - Star Weekend , and a great example of the new format coming into play.

But Mayweather argues that James’ ties to major corporations paved the way to his decade honor.

“No Gatorade behind me, no Sprite behind me, no Nike behind me,” Mayweather said. “You got to realize, these are billion-dollar companies. And we like to call it ‘placement.’

“So, if they paying – you get what you want if you paying enough. But if we going off just honesty, I’m the Athlete of the Decade. Of the last two decades actually.”

Tiger Woods won it for the 2000-2009 decade. For the most part, boxers have been left out of the debate, another sign that they’re engaged in a sport on the fringe. Since 1931, only four boxers have been voted Athlete of the Year – Joe Louis in 1935, Ingemar Johansson in 1959, Muhammad Ali in 1974 and George Foreman in 1994.

Foreman won for a compelling comeback in which he won a heavyweight title. Maybe, that’s why there are repeated rumors about a Mayweather return. A comeback might buy what his cash can’t.

Andre Iguodala ‘excited about basketball again’ after landing with Heat

  Andre Iguodala ‘excited about basketball again’ after landing with Heat After months of watching from from afar, veteran forward Andre Iguodala is ready to get back onto the court. “Playing with [the Golden State Warriors], we go to the Finals every year, and the media scrutiny behind every single move — you get exhausted,” Iguodala said, via ESPN. He signed a two-year, $30 million extension with the Heat, too, which reportedly includes a team option for the second year. The 36-year-old — after spending the past six seasons with the Warriors — had refused to report to Memphis after they acquired him in a trade this offseason, which made for an awkward situation, to say the least. That break, though, isn’t concerning for the Heat one bit.
