It is ridiculous that professional athletes eat that **** during a game. Come on, it is OK to eat some garbage here or there in your free time but on the bench in a game?
I know that is like a "tradition" in the NBA, I have seen candy on the benches a lot in the past, but they need to change it. If they want some fast glucose they can eat a banana or another fruit.
Hopefully Ayton usually does not eat that ****.
I am pretty sure that Booker already takes care of his diet, not sure about Ayton.
I don't see whats wrong with this. If you don't want to eat candy then don't, but why force your opinions on others? Is this what the world has come to? We are now candy shaming elite athletes that run more in a week then most of us in a year? Maybe we should Gatorade shame them to. That sh*ts got more sugar in it then the candy does.
You don't compare elite athletes to regular folk. You compare elite athletes to other elite athletes.
I guess I'd have been fine watching prime Shaq or someone crazy like MWP or Rodman eating candy on the bench. But I can't imagine Michael Jordan sucking on some sour patch kids on the sidelines. Makes Ayton look like a chump to me.
