Recently, the Denver Nuggets haven’t exactly been off to good offensive starts in the first quarter of their last five games and Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw figured that the team’s pre-game snacking habits were to blame.
Thanks to Tom Schad of the Denver Post, we learned that Shaw has decided to remove pizza and nachos from the Nuggets locker room before games:
Shaw has searched for answers to their offensive woes in the first quarters of games. Last week, he walked through the locker room, saw players eating pizza and nachos and believed the poor diet to be the cause. So he picked up all the junk food and threw it in the trash.
The Nuggets had fresh salads with chicken breast and cold cut sandwiches before Monday’s game. The sluggish result was the same.
Clearly, Shaw’s pre-game food choices still need to be worked on, if the Nuggets are to kick those first quarter blues.
