Ebs’ Hot Takes: Money v. Khabib, Nick Bosa, Los Angeles Dodgers

FROM THE PRESS BOX – It’s been quite the week in sports.

The NBA is finally underway. Though, LeBron James hasn’t suited up for the Los Angeles Lakers yet.

But I digress.

Nick Bosa decided to leave Ohio State and start his pre-draft process early.

Oh and Khabib Nurmagomedov is suppose to face Floyd Mayweather?

I think we we should start there…

Here’s a fresh set of Ebs’ Hot Takes.

Floyd Mayweather would smoke Khabib Nurmagomedov. I’m sorry, but Khabib really thinks he’d be able to defeat Mayweather just because he defeated Conor McGregor in UFC?

Is he serious?

“Let’s go Floyd, we have to fight now; 50-0 vs. 27-0, two guys who never lose,” Nurmagomedov said, via ESPN.com. “Let’s go. Why not? Because in the jungle, [there’s] only one king. Of course, I’m the king because he cannot drop McGregor, but I drop him easily. Let’s go.”

He beat McGregor because he was able to take him to the ground. Khabib knows he can’t do that in boxing, right?

Sure, Mayweather didn’t knock out McGregor. He probably wouldn’t Khabib either. But he’d still win. And easily.

If Khabib actually fights Mayweather, it’d be an embarrassment. Book it.

“Who’s the ‘A-side?’ He called me out so you have to come to my world,” Mayweather said. “I seen in an interview, he said when he hit Conor McGregor, he knocked Conor McGregor down. He said I didn’t knock Conor McGregor down. OK, Khabib. You got my leftovers. Whoop-dee-do.”

Nick Bosa will be the No. 1 overall pick in this spring. That is if a quarterback isn’t taken. You might not like Bosa deciding to leave Ohio State in the midst of a title run. But at the end of the day, Bosa has to look out for himself.

Bosa can do it all. He’s great against the pass and the run.

The talented defensive end might not be as good as his older brother, Joey, but Nick can be a star once he steps on the field as a rookie.

He’s the perfect fit for any 4-3 defense looking for a stud defensive end.

Oh, and if a team like the New York Giants is drafting first. Justin Herbert is the guy. He’s the top draft-eligible quarterback this year and it’s not even close.

He has the frame, arm and athleticism and isn’t a huge project like my guy Josh Allen or, yes, even Patrick Mahomes.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are winning it all. This is the year for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros are going to tire themselves out in the ALCS and the Milwaukee Brewers have ran out of steam.

The Dodgers lineup is stacked and the starting rotation has a trio of studs, thanks to Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler and Rich Hill. Oh, and the closer Kenley Jansen has rounded into form, too.

With the addition of the likes of Manny Machado, Brian Dozier and Ryan Madson at the trade deadline, this might be the most-well-rounder Dodgers team we’ve seen yet.

They’re primed for a World Series title.
