I even talked to their owner Jerry Buss, I thought we were going to have a done deal and then Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak changed Kobe’s mind and brought him back.” According to reports, the deal would of surfaced around Jason Terry, Josh Howard, Erick Dampier, and Devin Harris to L.A in exchange for Bryant.

When we think of the physical condition professional athletes have to maintain, we tend to think of them as having extremely strict diets. While that is often the case and certainly helps contribute to their success, it doesn’t mean star athletes don’t enjoy junk food every so often just like the rest of us.
