Knicks great Larry Johnson gave up his former teammates' eating habits in "Athletic Appetites" with Michelle Yu.
While Johnson and Yu learned to cook Esther & Carol's famous chicken and waffles, Johnson spilled who the worst junk food eater on his former team was.
"The most junk food eater I would say was Patrick Ewing," Johnson said. "Oh, Pat ate everything."
As for the best cook, Johnson didn't even hesitate when saying Charles Oakley won that title. The 6-foot-9, 260 pound Oakley wasn't just ferocious on the court, but if you didn't eat and like his food, you saw that fire from him at the dinner table too.
"He is, especially if he don't eat his food," Johnson said. "Now, you better eat it and tell him it's good, tell him the truth. Other than that, you know, you see the real Oakley."
Johnson also touched on how the current state of basketball is much different when he was playing.
"It was rougher," Johnson said. "You know, we played guys who scored 75, 80 points. You weren't scoring 100 points on us...I think now these guys are more athletic. They shoot the heck out the basketball. But we were just more fundamentally sound and more physical."
After finishing up their dish, Johnson gave out his third preferred dinner buddies in Allan Houston, John Starks, and Herb Williams.
Johnson played five seasons with the Knicks where he totaled 12.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game.
