CJ McCollum is the embodiment of a movement among NBA players who enjoy wine beyond a glass at dinner. All-Stars such as LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony of the Los Angeles Lakers, Chris Paul and Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns, and notable players such as retired Channing Frye, New Orleans Pelicans’ Josh Hart, Sacramento Kings’ Moe Harkless and Seth Curry of the Philadelphia 76ers are all immersed in the wine culture. Hall of Fame guard Dwyane Wade has had his own brand, Wade Cellars, since 2014.
During an interview with “Road Trippin’” with Channing Frye and ex-Spur Richard Jefferson, Horry was asked about why he thinks Olajuwon is better than Tim Duncan. Immediately, Horry makes it clear it is his personal opinion and says because of his belief he is public enemy No. 1 in San Antonio. “First of all, it’s just my opinion and I thought at the time that Dream [Olajuwon] was better than Tim and people get mad at me for saying that,” Horry said. “You got to understand I grew up an Olajuwon fan. I watched him. I played with him. I played with Tim. Tim was a hell of a player,” Horry said.
All puns aside, Channing Frye’s perspective on wine is downright refreshing. The 37-year-old has an NBA title with the Cleveland Cavaliers as the highlight of a notable 14-year career, but his passion for the grape seems to eclipse all of those accomplishments on the hardwood. “Whether I like the bottle or not, I appreciate all wine,” Frye says. “It’s like tasting a painting of that specific year and that’s when you begin to appreciate all of those little details that go into the story.”
