They call Floyd Mayweather Jr "Money" because he's the highest paid athlete of the year for the 2nd year in a row. It's estimated that the "Captain of the Money Team" will make as much as $128 million this year - off 2 fights! They call Mayweather "Money" because he supposedly carries a million in cash everywhere he goes. They call Mayweather "Money" because he supposedly just bet $5.9 million on the Heat tonight!
**ALERT** Good source from my #HeavyHitters Vegas crew alerted me that Floyd Mayweather has laid over $5,900,000 on Heat -7 tonight in Vegas

For those that don't bet. I'm pretty sure it's not a straight up bet on the Vegas line. Besides the -7 spread there's bets for every quarter, total points scored to how many rebounds a player can get on every game. But considering how "Mayweather rolls" I wouldn't be surprised if he was rolling everything on 1 bet.
