Before we get blasted in the comments for this being a fluff kind of piece- yes it is. You may choose not to read. You have been warned.
You ever wonder what an NBA player eats after a game? I suppose the question you have to ask is whether or not said player was more than a spectator for most of the contest. I’ve seen star players put down incredible portions of food following a game. Pounds of fruit salad. Pizzas. Yes, that is supposed to be plural. It makes sense when you consider how many calories they use in a game.
This may or may not be of any interest to you, but how would you like to know what a player is at least offered after a big game?
For the game against the Cavaliers, the Timberwolves were given the following choices (players could select as many as they wanted)-
Balsamic Glazed Chicken Salad (Romaine hearts, fresh mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, basil)
Tiger Shrimp Cocktail (12 pcs, spicy dipping sauce and fresh lime)
Salads (house, chef, fruit)
Quaker Steak and Lube Wings (18 pcs, hot, mild, Louisianan Licker)
Bacon Cheeseburger (beef, turkey or veggie).
Yes, only in America is a Bacon Cheeseburger an appetizer…
Full Slab Spicy Hot Smoked Baby Back Ribs (homemade dry rubbed ribs, cole slaw, mashed potatoes and Cajun gravy)
12oz Char Grilled Delmonico Steak (garlic mashed potatoes, caramelized mushrooms, roasted vegetables)
Catch of the Day- Baked Flounder (rice pilaf, roasted vegetables)
Chicken Parmesan w/Pasta Marinara (garlic bread, roasted vegetables).
I have to say, I was a little disappointed here. These are millionaires. No lobster? No Filet Mignon? Well, it was for the visiting team.
In addition, they listed four different pizza options plus a sushi menu. The sushi had to be ordered before the start of the game. I suppose that means any of the other menu items could be ordered at any time.
