Bums who are necessary for Floyd to be comfortable. As he himself has said many times...he wants everyone to work on 100% same as him. Even 'bums' in the security. Say what you will, but I call it a well oiled machine...bums or not.
But I got you, I know what you mean.
I simply can't forget Floyd saying 'They can't stop us baby'. That statement pisses confidence all over the place!
Bums can be necessary for the comfort of certain individuals. Those individuals who are comfortable with bums and leaches being around them, often have issues with being alone...or the "feeling" of being alone.
Not saying that any of this applies to Floyd, but it can be used in general, as history has showed us very successful people who were surrounded by bums/leaches, and ended up broke and alone.
I wouldn't want bums in my security...guys like that cant afford to be bums.
Statements that Floyd makes, which alludes to having so many people in his entourage and such, that he doesn't even know everyone's name, is not a good look.
Along with that, he has flashy lifestyle, multiple legal issues, a "so-so" fiance' who looks to be planning a strategic exit in the near future (not all that sure about her), 4 children by a crazy woman, an aging body in a not-so-forgiving sport, and let's not forget that he takes care of SEVERAL people. Not to be negative here, but we've all seen some of these characteristics of public figures with money...and only few have wiggled their way through the obstacles.

it does take a team to get a fighter to the highest levels. don't confuse the term "team" for "club." there are many stragglers in the club....very few who contribute to the team.
Exactly! I like how he had things in order a few years ago, now it seems to be growing out of control. I can appreciate guys like 50 Cent being around him, but then you guys like Ray J, who exhibit bi-polar ways and goes on crazy rants on radio shows.
This dude went nuts about a toddler scuffle that he got into, then continued to yell "Money Team" throughout the whole thing! No contributions whatsoever...just starving for attention in an attempt at a second wind in his career.
