Why Are NBA Player’s Receiving Potatoes?

Lately, many NBA player’s have been receiving personalized Potatoes. Why…?

 

Who From the NBA Received a Potato?

Dirk Nowitzki

“I have never received a potato,” Nowitzki said in his first comments about the strangest thing he has ever received in the mail after Dallas beat Brooklyn on Sunday. “It is something fun, hopefully, it is there when I get home. I haven’t seen it yet, we were on the road [when it was sent]. Usually, fan mail comes to our office, so I have only seen pictures.”

“You don’t get a potato every day, so it’s awesome.”

 

Kevin Durant

 

Frank Kaminsky III

Hassan Whiteside

Brook Lopez

Seeing everyone getting a potato, Lopez now wants one. But unlike the other guys, he wants to put it to good use and make mashed potatoes.

 

With them, many other NBA players have also received potatoes.

 

Where are the Potatoes Coming From?

The company is called Potato Parcel. “Co-founders Riad Bekhit and Alex Craig appeared on the reality show “Shark Tank” last year, pitching their Potato Parcel business idea of delivering personalized potatoes for a fee to the business moguls on the show.” (http://www.espn.com/blog/dallas/mavericks/post/_/id/4706736/dirk-nowitzkis-hot-potato). On the show, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban called the idea, “stupid on a stick.” This company bloomed once Dirk Nowitzki posted his potato on twitter. Suddenly, everyone wanted one. Potato on a stick turned into money.  “Oh, I thought it was hysterical,” Cuban told ESPN on Sunday about seeing potatoes show up on the NBA social scene last week. “I didn’t see it as a good investment, but because it is fun and it cracked me up on ‘Shark Tank,’ I loved it.” Even with the company blooming, Cuban still thinks the company is a stud.

  28. The first time my spirit animal, the Lone Wolf, came to me was in recurring nightmares as a child. The wolfs presence scared me, but now that I look back at it, I can feel in my heart that the Lone Wolf was watching over me. There have been several experiences where this Lone Wolf has once again shown itself to me. From the understanding I have come to, I myself am a Lone Wolf. I feel as if my life is a lie, deep in my heart I know I have a purpose in this world. I have a calling. Whenever I ignore this calling I fall victim to depression and the sense of being so lost in this world. I pay much, much more attention to my intuition and calling now of this Lone Wolf within me. In my heart, I know I am here for a very particular reason. All my life I have had visions, dreams, and day dreams of me living and fulfilling this purpose in my life, however it scares me. I am happy and afraid at the same time, because if my visions are true, which every day that seems to be the case, then… I have very big shoes to fill. It scares me so much but I am so proud of it. I pray to God every night for his angels to lower their wings and guide me through this path that he has chosen for me. I pray for the courage to endure the steep climb up this big mountain. Please send me good energy and pray for clarity in my life. It would be a blessing I wouldn’t be able to fathom into words.

  29. captainhardshell, you seem to enjoy idolizing Brad Warner. I bet you don’t really live a fulfilling life outside of sitting endlessly on the cushion, huh? I bet you enjoy idolizing your sensei too.

  30. Hi, I found out I’m hiv+ early this year when I was pregnant. I checked my CD4 count again two months after I gave birth and it was 896, is it ok to take Atroiza?

  31. I am not an Alaska native, nor do I live in Alaska. I’m from Wisconsin, but Alaska holds a special place for me – Denali National Park in particular. Now, while I want for more to do than to speak out here, or donate, I will say this. The science is against this. The destruction of the King Salmon runs would be immense and drastic. It would destroy a not insignificant portion of some of the most beautiful country on Earth. The economics are against it – job creation, while certainly a plus, is extremely temporary. Our own Governor Walker wishes to allow mining near the Bad River in Wisconsin, citing job creation as a significant motive. Jobs like this are temporary – the mine will die, and the dam, yesterday’s technology, will bring ruin to precious biodiversity, and is already obsolete. There are other, better ways. The dam must not be built.

  32. Hi Amadeu, I don’t know that my French skills are very good but I try. I have over the last few years traveled a lot to Brussels to perform; if I a going back I shall let you know. I will be performing in Spain this year too but not beautiful Catalonia. Wishing you well. Alyth

  33. In my dream, my brother owned 2 pet lions and my children, nieces and nephews were playing around them, having a wonderful time.

  35. This is a giant mess. How are you supposed to put gooey brownie batter on top of liquid caramel? Plus a 9 inch square pan is way too small to hold the ingredients. I have caramel dripping all over my oven (yes, I’ve lined it because I knew this would happen). After the listed cooking time I’m starting to smell burnt caramel, yet the center of the brownie is still completely liquid. I have been baking for a long time and I’m really disappointed with this.

This morning it was a very young pup who was very timid and gentle. I live in city limits and it was trapped on the inside of my chain link. I still have no idea how it got there.

Any comments or ideas as to why the coyote literally lands in my lap frequently??

  48. before I was born, my name was chosen to be Waylon. during the delivery I’ve been told that I cried like a coyote, so they named me Waylon coyote, like a play on words. not only is it my spirit animal, its also my namesake.

  53. The links in the WODs rarely work or go to the correct site for me. The Zone link (Know your Zone) displays a page not found error.
