Inside John Wall's fridge
The first time John Wall came to Washington as a Wizard, he was taken upstairs to a fancy reception in the Acela Club. There were all sorts of delicious, fancy foods, with ostentatiously fancy descriptions. Wall had someone go get him a few McDonald's hamburgers, with no toppings. So he sat there with the grapes and prosciutto crowd, eating his plain McDonald's burgers.
Which is what I thought of when I got to the part of Michael Lee's excellent Wall profile dealing with his kitchen skills.
The problem comes when mom's cooking runs out. Wall opened his pantry door to display bags of Doritos and Funyuns and boxes of oatmeal cream pies, Honey Buns and Cinnamon Toast Crunch bars, which he sometimes packs with him on road trips. "I got all the snacks. All I do is eat snacks," Wall said, before revealing more junk food options in his freezer and refrigerator. "I don't eat vegetables. My mom got to make those."
Wall rubbed his stomach, "I weigh a lot more than when I got here. I got to work on my diet."
Wall said he has considered hiring a personal chef but for now, his mother has assumed that role. When she is not around, Wall and Williams can be spotted eating at Legal Seafood or getting takeout from P.F. Chang's.
This picture, by Toni Sandys, sort of drives home the point. I definitely spy some Eggo's in there.
Sandys has a full photo gallery from Wall's place, including this box of shoes.
