Default OT: What kind of gum do the NBA players chew?

Was always curious to know. Seems like they can blow bubbles, but also some special kind. In fact, I saw some gum in Big 5 that has water in it, so when you chew on it you get hydrated.

I have no idea. I don't even know why they chew gum during the game in the first place. What if they swallow it? It'd be pretty stupid if a player had to leave the game because of gum issues.

I always see D-Wade chewing something, and the only way Odom could be blowing bubbles is through gum.

Maybe they chew sugar-packed gum, so the sweetness stimulates them during the game. What else could it be?

Don't they chew juicy fruit? Or most of them?

It showed an NBA logo behind the juicy fruit box.
