Default Candy before games

We all know that Lamar Odom loves to eat candy before games. Have you guys tried this before? Hey on Saturday i just might bring a bag of Sour Patch Kids to my game.

I don't know about u but for me i cant eat anything within like 1.5 hours of any game/practice or anything or i feel like barfing everywhere. U have to remember that NBA players are in better shae than most people will ever come close to in their lives, so there metabolisms can probably deal with eating something like that before a game. Just cause they can do it doesnt mean u can.

I wouldn't suggest it but if ur gonna try it i would suggest trying it at a practice first that way u dont cost ur team a game or anything if it doesnt work.

I can't wait until some NBA star says he wears his socks inside out and see how many start doing it. But seriously, eat what you are used to eating pregame, not because Odom does it. Yes, if you are used to McDonalds, IMO, it is ok to eat that. Not that it is the best choice, but not need to upset ones stomach with "clean" food if they are used to fatty food. This goes for anything, not just fast food or healthy food, or spaghetti, whatever.

Bananas are the way to go pregame... and postgame quite frankly. I just blend mine into a protein shake.

You must have a really slow metabolism or mine just goes way quick but then again I lift weights 3x a week and hoop 3x a week with one day of rest a week so that might be why.

But back to the original question, a bit of sugar and carbs do help so why dont you just drink Gatorade or a sports drink instead? Tastes just like candy anyways.

I drink a soda every now and then before games and it doesnt do anything to me, Im in pretty great shape though. It's not even basketball season for me anymore, but i still drink a soda here and their before a track meet, and I still do pretty damn amazing. So, I dont know. I here its not a great idea, but it doesnt, or hasnt affected me yet..

Just noticed the original poster of the thread on candy before basketball is named SourPatchKids. Nicely done.

I'll often have a handful of Swedish Fish before playing, but it doesn't seem to affect me one way or the other. They just taste good.
