According to the Cleveland Cavaliers Tristan Thompson, LeBron James “has the worst f-king diet ever.” Thompson told The Athletic LeBron eats desserts at every meal and “has like five french toast, drowns it in syrup with strawberries and bananas. Then he has like a four-egg omelette and then he goes and just f—ing dunks on somebody. It doesn’t make sense.” His regime is a big departure from other athletes like Tom Brady who sticks to a no processed foods and plant-based diet. 

New Orleans Pelican Zion Williamson had another impressive performance Thursday night. Even with Zion’s 32 points (a new single-game scaring mark) against the Oklahoma City Thunder, OKC’s Danilo Gallinari and Chris Paul kept the team on top for a 123-118 win. 

Paul George was fined $35,000 for criticizing officials after the LA Clippers loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. George’s offending comment was "There was some home-court cooking tonight to say the least. I mean it was 19 to 11. You all figure out what those numbers are. It was 19 to 11."
