Floyd Mayweather gives Miami Heat a pep-talk
On the eve of the Miami Heat’s preseason schedule, the back-to-back defending champions received a message from someone who knows a little about staying on top.
Floyd Mayweather Jr., the ultimate champ, attended Heat practice Sunday, spoke briefly about the difficulty of sustained excellence and, more importantly, energized the team on the day between training camp and the start of an eight-game preseason schedule. The Heat plays the Atlanta Hawks at AmericanAirlines Arena on Monday night.
“Not many people can relate to our guys in terms of championships, so we felt he would be a great voice for them to hear,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “His message was awesome. The guys ate it all up.”
