Mad Dash: Floyd Mayweather pays chef $1,000 per meal

NBC on Yahoo Sports

Being a personal chef to a celebrity or star athlete has to have a few perks, but when Las Vegas' Chef Q signed on to cook for Floyd Mayweather, we're guessing she wasn't expecting to get paid $1,000 per meal. The chef told TMZ that she doesn't actually charge that much for a meal, but Mayweather felt the grub was worth it. Judging from Chef Q's Instagram page, the meals definitely look amazing. Do they look like they're worth $1,000? Not exactly. But if Mayweather goes on to defeat Manny Pacquiao on May 2, we're guessing the price will be more than justified as a contribution to cementing the "Money May" legacy.

Dwyane Wade knows a thing or two about style. He's always among the best dressed players in the NBA, and now thanks to him, 15 teens from the Miami area will be the best dressed at prom. Wade teamed up with Hublot (and brought along his personal stylist) to outfit a group of foster teens for their big night. He also took some time to give a little advice, answer some questions, and remind the group that no matter how difficult life can seem, their dreams are within reach.

One guy who might have two dreams within reach is Packers wide receiver Davante Adams. Adams had himself filmed dunking this offseason, and after seeing him throw down, we're a little curious as to whether he could hang in the NBA slam dunk contest. Adams throws down a 360, between-the-legs dunk with ease. He barely even runs up before the dunk. Also, at just 6-foot-1, he doesn't have the kind of height that most NBA dunkers are working with. Our new proposal: Open the NBA dunk contest to the best dunkers in every sport.
