Found January 14, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
In case you didn't think that NBA players are just like us, Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph recently revealed a fear of felines.Randolph was making a special guest appearance on Animal Planet's Pit Bulls and Parolees and while talking about the episode, he revealed that he wasn't a huge fan of cats: “You can’t be both a dog lover and a cat lover,” Randolph says. “I’ve got a crazy phobia about cats. For some reason, I’m always thinking they’re going to scratch me. If a cat walks up, I’m going, ‘Oh no, this dude about to scratch me — I know it!’ Cats scare the hell out of me. I love animals, but I’m no cat lover. Guys usually aren’t.”(Courtesy of Off The Bench)
