Chris Kaman is a bit of a weirdo. If you follow him on twitter, you know that he hunts, and does a lot of other strange things. Robert Sacre is another center for the Lakers, and he is a little on the “fun” side as well. He’s known more for his bench dances than he is on the court, but nonetheless both these guys are characters. Well, they have teamed up to become a super team of weirdos, and they started out with buying a cow, according to ESPN LA:
A couple of members of the Los Angeles Lakers took it to a whole other level by buying a bovine. That’s right, Chris Kaman,Robert Sacre and Lakers strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco bought a cow.
DiFrancesco, who has picked up the nickname “Grass-Fed Tim” around the team because of his belief in the health benefits of eating grass-fed beef, came up with the idea after connecting with a farm that raises grass-fed cows down in San Diego.
Kaman is getting half, 200 pounds, while Sacre and DiFrancesco are getting a quarter, 100 pounds, each.
“I had to go to a Best Buy to go buy me a 15 cubic foot freezer,” said Sacre, who estimated that the freezer and the beef will end up costing him about $1,300 combined. “It’s, uh, it’s intense.”
So there you go. This isn’t a live cow, but it’s still a little strange. This is life for the Lakers now. Frankly, I like this team better than last year’s team.
