First we had Joakim Noah singing off key as part of a rookie hazing stunt, which wasn’t the least bit surprising given his dancing style. Now we’re finding out that the rookie not only can’t sing, can’t dance, but that he also can’t follow directions:
[Ben] Gordon said he took Joakim Noah’s per diem for failing his rookie responsibilities and bringing Dunkin’ Donuts to practice and not Krispy Kreme.
The former company sponsors the ever-popular scoreboard race after the third quarter of home games, which made Gordon backtrack laughingly.
“Dunkin’ Donuts are very good,” he said. “It’s just the majority prefer Krispy Kreme. It’s not even about the taste. Krispy Kreme is farther away to give the rookies more trouble.”
It’s OK, Ben. We don’t blame you guys for preferring Krispy Kreme based on taste — everyone knows it’s better. Thing I always wondered was why athletes who get paid to be in tip-top physical shape are eating those deep fried treats. Shouldn’t they have rookies go on runs to GNC for protein shakes? Or better yet, why not just have them dress up like baseball rookies?
