Money Mayweather, Ice Trae's Rise, & USMNT Fandom
Floyd Mayweather's exhibition fight with Logan Paul stole the spotlight in a weekend that featured the US Men's National team defeating Mexico as well as a number of NBA Playoffs stories. In this podcast episode, Emory Marketing Professor Mike Lewis discusses what the Mayweather-Paul exhibition means for the future of boxing. Mike and I then discuss what LeBron's first round exit means for the future of the NBA and what player(s) have the opportunity to take on the mantle as the NBA's best. In the show's final segment, Mike and I discuss fan support (or lack thereof) for the US Men's National Team as well as the measures taken to control fan behavior that many consider to be problematic.
