Looks like the Clippers are trying to step out from the Laker’s shadow.

The L.A. based basketball team is potentially foregoing the Staples Center for an arena of their own in Inglewood.

Inglewood’s City Council is voting today on a negotiation agreement to develop the arena, which would sit across the street from a different stadium being built by Rams owner Stan Kroenke.

In completely different sports news, boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s coming August fight with Conor McGregor is sparking controversy. Though McGregor is the first man to hold two Ultimate Fighting Championship belts simultaneously, he’s not a boxer – so why would he step into the boxing ring?

Host Larry Mantle and Take Two host A Martinez chat about these two unexpected stories.

What do you think of the Clippers’ plan for a new stadium? What’s the reasoning behind the unconventional Mayweather-McGregor match?
