Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans tweeted about hummus:

What a great lesson for everyone who has never tried hummus. It’s worth a taste.

But NBA commentator Jeff Van Gundy isn’t biting.

Van Gundy on “The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz” on ESPNews:

Never tried it.

I wouldn’t call me bland. I would call me fundamental. I’m very fundamental in my eating. I’m not trying to do trick shots. I know what I like. I eat what I like. And why would I try something out of the realm if I already know I like something very well?

I’m happy with what I eat. I don’t eat to live. I live to eat. And why would I try something that I – I like a lot of different foods. But I’m well-rounded enough. I don’t need to round any more. My body is round. My eating habits are well-rounded. I’m trying to eat better during this quarantine. And I don’t need to be shamed about my lack of hummus.

I thought Van Gundy’s prediction the NBA would cancel the rest of its season was a hot take.

But unapologetically refusing even to try hummus? That’s spicier than a delicious red-pepper hummus.
