NBA players are some of the fittest people in the entire world. You can't run a fast-break play past Kawhi Leonard or block a LeBron dunk without being in tip-top shape. If you want to know what an NBA player eats to stay in top athletic form, click here. But if you want to know the absolute worst thing you could possibly eat if you're training for... well... anything, really, then read on.

WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT?: The Double Fried Twinkie

WHO HATH WROUGHT THIS MONTROSITY?: FedEx Forum, home of the Memphis Grizzlies

WHAT COMPRISES SUCH A THING?: Not one but two Twinkies double-fried in funnel cake batter and topped with a choice of caramel, strawberries, raspberries, and chocolate (so really, the name should probably be The Double Fried Double Twinkie, if you want to be pedantic about it).

I NEVER KNEW TWINKIES COULD LOOK SO FANCY: This is Justin Timberlake's house. No one can be underdressed. Not even the Twinkies. 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?: It's a real bargain at $4.

HOW MANY CALORIES WE TALKIN'?: About 900 for both Twinkies. 

IS THIS THE LEAST HEALTHY CONCESSION FOOD EVER?: No, there's fruit, that makes it health food.
