Do you have hoop dreams? Wish you could make the NBA, or at least, a couple of more baskets in your Monday night’s rec league? Well maybe the trick isn’t in the practice or strength training. Maybe it’s in what you’re eating. Well if you’re looking for the secret ingredient to improving your game, then check out what the stars of the NBA eat for breakfast. After all, if it works for them, it could work for you.
Believe it or not, the breakfast of champions for this NBA champion is a large bowl of Froot Loops. Steph says, “Yeah, I know it’s immature, but I’m still a kid at heart. I love my Froot Loops.” Hey, if it helps him shoot those 3’s, I’ll take 3 bowls please.
Kevin Durant may be the next star to win a championship. Especially considering he makes more healthy choices than reigning champ, Steph Curry. “I wake up an have a smoothie. Milk, bananas, protein powder, you know … all that good stuff.”
Looks like we have another cereal killer here, because like Steph, John Wall loves his big bowl in the morning. Although, his tastes have matured a bit as he eats the kinds of cereals that are a bit healthier. “These days I like my Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies. You know, the basics, man.”
Kobe is not just a pillar of basketball excellence, but he’s also a pillar of good health. At age 38, he has no choice but to eat a healthy diet. Kobe says he eats a ton of fruit in the morning, avoiding the processed sugars and corn syrup found in most people’s breakfast.
What does the most colorful dresser in the NBA eat? Well believe it or not, Russell Westbrook chows down on the most boring breakfast on the list. “Rice man. I love my bowl of rice.” Put some soya sauce on that for us will you, Russell?
What does the biggest man on this list, and one of the biggest in the NBA, Deandre Jordan eat? “Corn Flakes with lots of sugar. Like, lots of it bro.” Looks like the younger they are, the more cereal they eat.
Another very veteran player, just like Kobe, Tim Duncan has to make healthy food choices. “I start every days with 4 peaches, 2 bananas, and a bowl of cooked quinoa.”
So what does The King start his day with? A breakfast fit for a king, Lebron says. “I start with a bowl of oatmeal, one banana, 4 hard boiled eggs, bacon, toast and, yeah, I pour some syrup on it too.” Feeling hungry yet?
