Fun Fact: So.... DeAndre Jordan LOVES 5 Gum

Have you ever wondered what Clippers center DeAndre Jordan‘s favorite pastime is? While some players enjoy shoe shopping, painting, fashion and every other hobby out there, DAJ keeps it simple: video games and gum.

Not just any gum though. At an ESPN event it was revealed that Jordan prefers only 5 gum to chew on and off the court. And once the company found out that tidbit of information, they decided to send him a chair that’ll commemorate his likes, as seen below.

Jordan had this to say about receiving the chair that’ll forever compliment his video game playing.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the video game chair that 5® gum created for me! I chew gum all the time while I play video games, and now I’ll never run out thanks to the stash of gum in a drawer underneath this chair.”

Of the gum, Jordan was provided with the flavors of 5 Photon (pineapple), 5 Ascent (new winter mint flavor), and 5 Prism to hold him down during the latter end of the season.

“As the season ramps up, I’m excited to have a new place to relax, play video games and chew gum during my downtime.”

If you happen to ever run across Jordan while you’re out in Los Angeles or whenever he’s in a visiting city, don’t be shy to throw (not literally) him some 5 Photon gum which is his favorite. He’ll greatly appreciate it.
