Luigi Datome scoffs at your sports drinks. He dumps your water on your face. When it comes to pre-game drinks, there's only one thing Luigi Datome - DA GAWD - wants; An enormous cup of coffee, straight black. Cream & Sugar is for children, and the weak.
Before games, Datome can be found with a cup of coffee in his hands. Unlike other players who prefer sports drinks, he sticks with a hot beverage.Source: Jessica Camerato, BasketballInsiders
“It’s just something to wake me up a little bit,” he explained as he stirred. “I got used to a shot of espresso back in Italy. Here, everywhere I go, I just find a big quantity of coffee and I enjoy it. I drink it straight black. I just need caffeine.”
Little caffeine pickup. Maybe create some separation in defenders with a series of coffee farts. Makes perfect sense to me.

Vintage WTHHT: What the Hell Happened To...Alaa Abdelnaby
authored by TB727
He was selected with the 25th pick in the 1990 draft by Portland after a 4 year career at Duke. Alaa didn't win a national championship, as he graduated the year before Duke would win their back to back NCAA titles. I remember his final college game clearly when UNLV destroyed them in the National Championship game. As a member of Portland he was on the 1991 team (that began the season 19-1) and the 1992 team which lost to the Bulls in the Finals. Even though his playing time was minimal, this wound up being his most success in the NBA.
