Wilson Chandler shouts out a former teammate for his new dietary choices

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Tweet of the Week is once again from Wilson Chandler and it is once again related to veganism. It sounds like quite a few players are now opting to go vegan, including one former Denver Nugget that I'm sure we all remember, and Chandler has taken notice.

This isn't that shocking, considering JaVale McGee has always come across as very health oriented. I'm sure most Nuggets fans remember his often-used hashtag #JugLife, encouraging fans to drink a jug of water a day to stay properly hydrated. McGee isn't the only one who's recently made the drastic change in his diet, however.

If in fact Chandler is correct and Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard are now both vegans, then one might wonder if this is the start of a movement after all. Lillard and Irving are both superstars in the NBA, and if they become as big of an advocate of veganism as Ill Will, then it's possible many players will follow in their footsteps in order to reap the same benefits. Props to Chandler for being one of the faces of the plant based movement.
