The Adventures of Floyd and Chad
Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Chad Johnson are two of the most controversial personalities in sports, and today provided another example of why that holds true. Mayweather posted a photo of (what appears to be) the ultrasound of two fetuses belonging to ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson with the caption, "The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies. #ShantelJackson #FloydMayweather #TheMoneyTeam #TMT.” The photo has since been removed. Meanwhile, Johnson discussed cheating on his ex-wife and somehow used Martin Luther King Jr. and his "hoein'" as a justification for his own actions.

Magic Johnson rarely has a bad word to say about anyone, so it was pretty surprising to me when he sent out a tweet celebrating the resignation of Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni. That was met by a rebuttal from Charles Barkley, who scolded his former Dream Team teammate.
