When some of CSTB’s best and brightest contributors would rather write about food than sports, can I really point an accusatory finger at a professional basketball player who apparently feels the same way? In what might be the most unusual case of player suspension thanks to social network overdose, shooting guard JR Giddens, veteran of cups of coffee with both the Celtics and Knicks, found himself in the doghouse with Power Electronics Valencia coach Svetislav Pesic, according to Sportando.net.
Pesic was tired of the continuous pics posted on Twitter by JR Giddens about the food he was going to eat every time (check the pics about the not healthy food) and decided to not register the forward for Euroleague Top 16.
For Giddens, who started the season in Poland with Asecco Prokom before being waived when the Polish champs failed to reach Euroleague Top 16, was fatal a sandwich with egg, tomatoes, lettuce and ham eaten for breakfast. The player was not adviced on time and Pesic got really upset that asked to the management to keep the forward out of the second part of the most important European competition.
Giddens was also kicked out of practice.
I’m more amazed there’s a professional team called Power Electronics Valencia. This might represent the one and only chance Prurient has at being played over a hoops arena tannoy.
