ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Washington Wizards are one of the League’s most intriguing teams, a mixture of promising young talent and veteran leadership. And when a team is in a situation like this, it usually generates more questions than answers: Will the young guys live up to their potential? Will the role players be able to provide the intangibles a Playoff team needs?
But perhaps the most pressing question that the Wizards have answered thus far is this: What are we eating for breakfast? Because from the looks of things, where breakfast is involved, the Washington Wizards really love cereal.
The Washington Post‘s great Dan Steinberg put in some work around the Wizards locker room investigating the links between cereal and the Wizards after noticing circumstantial evidence on social media, from Martell Webster‘s love for Cap’n Crunch…
…to Chris Singleton‘s frequent rhetorical cereal-related queries…
Hmmm what cereal should I destroy—

As it turns out, Trevor Booker is probably the most prolific cereal consumer on the Wizards, eating “up to 21 bowls a week.” And because Steinberg knew we’d all be curious about this, he drilled deep for details on favorite brands…
“Top 5: Frosted Flakes No. 1, Apple Jacks, Cocoa Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles and then Honey Nut Cheerios on the health side,” Singleton said.
“I like Honeycomb, I like Froot Loops,” Ariza said. “Froot Loops is the bomb. I like Fruity Pebbles. Let me think. Cap’n Crunch, the Crunch Berries. Crunch Berries are unbelievable, except they tear up the roof of my mouth.”
“Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Corn Flakes, Frosted Mini-Wheats — those are my top three,” Booker said. “I just go in my pantry and just go down the line, see which one I’ve got a taste for.”
We are all the Washington Wizards.
