The brothers, who have a third brother who played collegiately in Ellwood, know the chances of playing against each other again are unlikely. Wally, for one, hopes not, for all the brotherly reasons. “I was excited this happened; I like watching him play,” he said of his older brother. “Of course, I know how good of a player he is, so I don’t think I should be seeing him too much down here.”
Many of last year’s rookies likewise dealt with the need to change their diet, and the difficulties that come with doing so. Five of the sophomores who spoke with Bleacher Report mentioned how prevalent fast food was in their lives while they were in college. “Because you have no money in college, that’s really all you can eat,” Nets guard Caris LeVert says. “At Marquette, we only had a couple of eating options: a Jimmy John’s, a Subway, a Burger King—and most of it was in the dining hall,” Pistons forward Henry Ellenson adds. “A major adjustment for me in the NBA was having to make dinner and find meals. And I can’t really cook.”
His brother, Wayne, is a huge Food Network fan, so Henry enlisted his help. He also discovered life in the NBA comes with some dietary perks. “Lobster rolls became my new favorite food,” Ellenson says. “I was telling my mom, ‘We don’t really have it back in Wisconsin'”—where Ellenson grew up—”but I started getting it anytime we went out as a team in Boston or one of those East Coast cities.”
Although Ellenson failed to crack the Pistons’ rotation last season – he played in 19 games and averaged 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds – he worked hard in the off-season and had an impressive showing in Orlando this summer. “I was able to watch him in the summer league,” Pistons community ambassador Earl Cureton said Wednesday. “He picked up a few pounds (of muscle). Usually, when you’re coming in that young, it takes awhile for your body to develop. He got stronger and more confident. You can definitely see the difference between last year and right now.
