Ang Lee In-N-Out: Director Not The Only One, Spurs Celebrated With Burgers Too

NBA players today take much better care of their bodies than in the past. Whereas NBA players smoked in the 60s, did drugs in the 70s, and ate fast food during the 80s and 90s, most NBA stars today, most notably Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Kevin Love, are on strict diets that either cut out sugar, carbs, or red meat.

Well, not the San Antonio Spurs. Much like director Ang Lee after winning a Best Director Oscar, the team went for a late night In-N-Out Burger run recently in Oakland.

Mike Monroe of Spurs Nation reports:

"It was one of those carpe diem moments," forward Matt Bonner said. "You know you shouldn't be eating a grease-laced double burger with fried onions, fries and a milk shake, but once in a while, you've got to go for it. It was one of those things where no one will claim responsibility, but everybody enjoyed it."

Even Parker, a French native who is a sophisticated diner, joined in, calling the In-N-Out run "awesome."

He added: "We did the same thing about three years ago, too, and that was awesome, too. Even though I'm a gourmet guy, it doesn't hurt to eat a double-burger sometimes. I had two double-doubles and a milkshake. I was hungry."

Many young Americans who've been to New York and California have taken sides in a In-N-Out vs Five Guys debate, and Stephen Jackson sides with the east coast joint. 

"It was good, but I don't like In-N-Out like that," Jackson said. "Fatburger, Sonic, Five Guys, but not In-N-Out. But I ate one."
