Forget Birdman's $2 million bet on the Heat in the 2011 finals. It's got nothing on Floyd Mayweather's $5.9 million bet on the team tonight. Well, at least if a single tweet is to be believed.

Who knows how legit it is, but Mayweather is a big-time better who likes to post pics of his winning tickets on Twitter. Though, he's usually not throwing this much money around.

Perhaps adding more credence to the rumor is the fact that Mayweather was in town this weekend hosting a cash-themed party at Cameo nightclub on Saturday.

So, who knows, but if true Mayweather is placing a lot of faith in the Heat. He's not only hoping the team squeaks by, but wins by a healthy margin.

Of course, what's $5.9 million to the highest-paid athlete in the world? He's expected to make at least $90 million this year (gambling winnings not included).

He could probably feed every homeless person in the US. But naw, Skrippers and gambling is his choice of spending habit! Might as well smoke crack.

So weve resorted to publishing unverified info now ... I wonder if my professors would allow Tweets as primary or secondary sources. Journalism getting way to EZ

Die Hard Heat fan here BUT lets be real here. These guys have out played the heat 5 out of the last 6 games. It just so happens we have the MVP who has bailed us out in the 4th. Wade looks like garbage and Allen missing free throws. There will have to be a serious pounding in Miami tonight for them to cover the 7pts. Personally I would not bet they cover but I don't have any money to piss away!

+7 Heat... some are less, +3 but everyone has the Heat really. Biggest upset in Conference finals history if the Pacers win!
