After losing two straight games to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Golden State Warriors have responded by winning the next games and now lead the series 3-2.
Game 5 was crucial. The Warriors did not want to go back to Memphis trailing in the series, so they put on a show for their home crowd. Oracle was loud and rocking all night, but there was one particular fan that stood out.
Fresh off winning the fight of the century, Floyd Mayweather was sitting court-side and witnessed Steph Curry and the Warriors beat up on the Grizzlies 98-78. The Warriors tweeted out a picture of Mayweather at the game:

The Oracle crowd was not too pleased to see the Champ. Maybe they were upset they had to pay $100 for a fight that was not very entertaining. It seemed like Mayweather had a good time, but a member of his entourage got into some altercation that involved Thunder Sticks, which is hilarious.
If the Warriors advance to the Conference Finals, expect to see Money Mayweather in the stands more often. The Champ likes to watch and play basketball and he does not have a favorite team, so maybe he will became an honorary fan.
