Conor McGregor runs the world and we are just living in it. Period.
Late in the fourth quarter last night, the Memphis Grizzlies were down by one to the Los Angeles Clippers. Not known for his outside jumper, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol hit a clutch three-pointer with under 15 seconds to put Memphis up by two points. To celebrate, Gasol stole a page out of Conor McGregor’s book and imitated the fighter’s famous strut down the court.
I love this move by Gasol. The confidence is clearly working for McGregor so why not copy the Irishman’s moves?
No one, and I mean no one, is a bigger superstar right now than Conor McGregor. The UFC star is pure electricity. Girls want to be with him. Guys want to be him. It must be good to be the king, especially when NBA superstars want a piece of the action. Long live McGregor.
Also, just so we’re clear, McGregor did not come up with his swag walk by himself. McGregor got the idea from the living legend himself, Vincent Kennedy McMahon and his Billion Dollar Strut.
