Lakers' Kaman, Sacre buying a whole cow's worth of beef

Chris Kaman hasn't eaten beef in six years. So why is he buying a cow's worth of beef?

After going six years without eating beef, new Laker Chris Kaman is ready to get back into the game.

And what better way than to buy a cow?

According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, Kaman plans to purchase an entire cow's worth of beef along with center Robert Sacre and strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco. Trainer Gary Vitti reportedly backed out due to a lack of storage space.

"Gary Vitti ran out of freezer space, so I think he’s out," Kaman told McMenamin. "So, I got to pick up the slack. I’m happy to, though."

Kaman plans to take half - all 200 pounds of it - while Sacre and DiFrancesco split the other half, roughly 100 pounds each.

"I had to go to a Best Buy to go buy me a 15 cubic foot freezer," said Sacre, who said the lofty purchase will run him about $1,300 total. "It’s, uh, it’s intense."

DiFrancesco, nicknamed "Grass-Fed Tim" sold the duo on the idea, and Kaman is all in.

"I’m going to get a bunch of the bones, too, and boil them down and make some beef stock," Kaman said. "It’s good for your joints and ligaments and tendons."
