New Atlanta Hawks owner Alex Meruelo was asked at his introductory press conference to reveal one of his deepest secrets. He thought about it for what felt like weeks before announcing his love of dessert. Not a specific dessert, but dessert. Everybody likes dessert! Of course Twitter had itself a fine old time with that news, with our own Jon Bois kicking off festivities.
Here is the best Twitter joke on the matter, which combines both the best of all desserts (seriously, they're UNFAIR) with a Hawks Hall of Famer, followed by many others that were also fantastic:
Bob Pettit fours #hawksdesserts (Now with correct hashtag!)
Haagen Dazaza Pachulia AK #hawksdesserts
"Pistachio" Pete Maravich #hawksdesserts
Roomafteryourmeal Robinson #hawksdesserts
Jon Koncake #hawksdesserts
Magnum "Swiss" Rolle RT @jon_bois: Cookie Blaylock #hawksdesserts
Jacqueoclate Vaughn-Vaughns. #hawksdesserts RT @jon_bois: Cookie Blaylock #hawksdesserts
And I'm pretty proud of this one, but nobody else liked it all that much.
