While his teammates are hydrating with water, Gatorade, or other drinks before games, John Wall prefers something sweeter. Wall told the Washington Post’s Dave Steinberg that he drinks at least two large McDonald’s hot chocolates every single day. With extra sugar.
“I’ve been doing this since I was little,” he said after Wizards practice on Thursday. “Even in the summer time when it be hot as hell, I’ll be still drinking it.”
Wall says he has one in the morning and one before games, or if there isn’t a game, at least two on the way home from practice. Why hot chocolate, specifically McDonald’s?
“I don’t know. It’s just good to me,” Wall said, adding that he started the habit while in grade school. “Some people use coffee and Red Bull. This just gets me ready.”
Whatever the reason, it’s working. Wall’s having his best season yet as a pro, and the Wizards are in the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2005.
