I found a fix to my mac client crashes and want to share it, maybe this will help someone else
Weirdly, disabling Bluetooth did the trick for me. Bluetooth has a tendency to cause wifi issues in OSX, which is the case for me, maybe these issues caused my mac client to crash. I had to get a new mouse just for LoL, since the apple mouse connects via Bluetooth, but it's worth it

That's an interesting statement you make. Do you perhaps have a source (official or otherwise) about BT interfering with Wifi on a Mac? I haven't heard that one before.

Personally I never use BT, which might be why I never noticed this. I play wired (Wacom + MS keyboard).

This issue is mentioned in articles on common mac issues, for example :

http://fieldguide.gizmodo.com/the-worst-bugs-in-os-x-yosemite-and-how-to-fix-them-1652690924

And by googling 'mac bluetooth wifi interference' we can find a lot of user complains :

Personally for me the game starts crashing when i have bluetooth on and i'm connected to a slower wifi connection.
