Many NBA fans choose to communicate directly with their favorite players through the typical social media channels, but one anonymous NBA fan has chosen to reach out to the game’s elites by sending them personalized potatoes.
Dirk Nowitzki posted a spud with his portrait that he received after eclipsing the 30,000 career point mark to his Twitter account.

Injured Warriors superstar Kevin Durant is the latest to receive an inspirational spud. It didn’t have a picture on it, but did have a message wishing him a quick recovery:
“Wishing you a quick recovery KD! Hope this stupid potato eases the pain.”
Treatment and inspirational potatoes. Thanks, whoever you are. pic.twitter.com/10IzZPmrFo

Although there is no lead on the identity of the potato loving fan, it’s only logical to assume their favorite all-time player is Spud Webb.
