B. Shaw, UCSB grad, NBA Champion and first time head coach as the NBA’s Denver Nuggets has seen his team getting off to some slow starts in a lot of their games and he found something that may be the answer. Food. There is a story in the Denver Post from earlier in the week..
Shaw has searched for answers to their offensive woes in the first quarters of games. Last week, he walked through the locker room, saw players eating pizza and nachos and believed the poor diet to be the cause. So he picked up all the junk food and threw it in the trash.
The Nuggets had fresh salads with chicken breast and cold cut sandwiches before Monday’s game.
The interesting thing here, is that he might be right, and he would know, because his wife Nikki, is also known as celebrity chef Nikki Shaw. The celebrity chef thing happened when they were spending a lot of time in LA, but it goes a lot deeper than just an NBA wife looking for something to do. She’s legit.
Well done B. Shaw. Well done Nikki. Lets see if it works in the locker room!
