The need for reinforcements was glaring, and on the weekend of Jan. 25, the Lakers had a tentative deal in place to acquire Bulls forward Jabari Parker in exchange for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Michael Beasley, league sources told The Athletic. However, Caldwell-Pope — another Rich Paul client — had to approve any trade and had not signed off on the deal. The Bulls awaited Caldwell-Pope’s approval over that weekend, sources said.
Gibson’s buddy and mastermind of doughy deliciousness is named Diane Simon, and she’s a 64-year-old Cleveland native who works as a manager of an AT&T branch in her hometown. But NBA players of present and past know her by a different moniker. “I call her ‘The Cookie Mom,’” Grizzlies center Joakim Noah said. “She’s in my phone as ‘The Cookie Mom.’” For close to 40 years, Simon has been a staple in NBA arenas across the Midwest — most notably Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago — providing baked goods and motherly love to your favorite NBA players. Simon is single and without children. She sees the NBA and its players as her babies. She bakes on her own time. She travels on her own dime. “She doesn’t even ask for money,” Wizards forward Jabari Parker said. “She just likes to take care of players.”
A month-and-a-half later, Parker is playing his best ball of the season and is readying to return to Chicago for a second time. The Wizards, who played there two days after acquiring the 24-year-old, will face the Bulls again Wednesday. And Parker has no regrets about his partial season with the Bulls, all the way down to his now infamous comments about not getting paid to defend. “It was a learning experience for me,” Parker told The Athletic. “You can’t be real with everybody, because they’re not real, themselves. And I wasn’t meaning that defense isn’t important, but we gotta be real.”
