Big almond guy over here. One of those snacks you figure’s healthy, even though in the quantity I’m taking them down, they’re probably not. Like wheat thins and pretzels. Just keep convincing myself that they’re a workout in my mouth.
But as a sponsor for an NBA team, it’s a bad look. To be a champion, you’ve got to dress like a champion. That comes down to your sponsors. Warriors will probably have some Silicon Valley company on their shirt. Cavaliers will have a bank or something. Almonds? ALMONDS? That’s not going to get the job done. You don’t look yourself in the mirror with the almond patch on your chest, and say “yes, this is how a champion dresses”.
