Warriors Freaked Out When New Trainers Banned Peanut Butter and Jelly

I mean if you’re going to cut out all the sweets, you shouldn’t be allowed to mess with the ones with good protein and energy sources as well.

The Wall Street Journal’s Ben Cohen pinned an excellent article on the Warriors and the inner-locker room takeover that was set to take place after the banning of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

The Warriors hired a new training staff in the offseason, with part of the new regimes focus being on cutting back the sugar intake on the team’s private plane, with the players agreeing to give up soda, cookies and candy.

The war was on once Peanut Butter & Jelly was axed.

“You gotta fight for your rights,” Warriors assistant coach Luke Walton told The Wall Street Journal about the PB&Js. “If you believe in something you gotta fight for it.”

The backlash began with Walton. When he wasn’t coaching as Steve Kerr’s interim replacement, Walton went out of his way to bother everyone he could about the PB&Js, even though he’s well aware of the sugar in jelly, fat in peanut butter and all that awful gluten in bread. “I stuck to my guns,” Walton said, “and I kept complaining.”

He complained to performance coach Lachlan Penfold. He complained to flight attendants. He complained to anyone who would listen. Walton didn’t have to enlist any Warriors in the effort, he said, because he already knew whose side they were on. “Every player loves them,” Walton said.

According to the report, even the GM complained, but the good meals didn’t return until the MVP said his peace.

“Somebody made a call,” Shaun Livingston told the WSJ. “Probably Steph.”
