What is the hardest thing to give up?
Definitely the fried chicken and pulled pork. I’m from Winston Salem [North Carolina]. I’m just at home – that’s where my wife and kids are. It’s crazy to drive in Bojangle right now and can’t even see it [laughs].
Cookies still a favorite?
Sure. There are vegan cookies now, so I still love waffles and raisins, chocolate chip cookies, churros, and all that.
What are breakfast, lunch and dinner like for you today?
There are many different types of foods that you can eat. I have pancakes all the time. Many people don’t realize that the only difference between plant-based pancakes and regular pancakes is the egg. Breakfast usually consists of a JustEgg with vegetables, a piece of Beyond Meat sausage, a serving of fruit, and my smoothie. Lunch will be a salad, a bowl of stir-fried vegetables with rice and a protein-rich drink. For dinner, my chef prepares meals that give me the nutrients I need to make the next day. I eat a variety of beans, grains, and vegetables. The biggest thing about using plants is that it opened up to me the variety of foods you can have.
It’s the season, but can you give me an overview of your game day routine?
I will get up and have breakfast. I’ll go to the gym and take a plane before shooting. After the release, I would go home, eat a small meal, and then exercise for about two hours. Right after that, I would take a nap for about two hours. I would get up, get dressed, eat breakfast and go to the arena. I’ll go there, do all my stretching, lift the trigger and then playtime.
What’s the worst thing you’ve ever eaten before a game?
When I come to the tournament, it’s nothing for me to have a burger and fries or chicken wings and fries before a game. When you were young, you didn’t know. I would probably still go out and have 30.
What does recovery look like now at 37?
It still has a lot of active and stretched body and tissue. I think reducing inflammation helped me. I’m not saying plant-based use is for everyone but for me it’s one of the first things I focus on. Playing enough games and minutes that I’ve played and still feel good is a win for me.
You are now an investor in Move, an inside company. What makes you want to be an investor?
Getting into field basketball, I just wanted to be able to share the knowledge I gained during my years in the NBA. One thing about Move — and about the body as a whole — is that it all starts with your feet. One of the things that a lot of fans don’t necessarily see is that they don’t see what’s happening in the locker room or when the boys practice – the first thing they do when they get a new pair of shoes is they put on. Find. orthopedic or their inner lining. Getting that information, not only for young athletes but for the masses, is very important.
