Forget Wheaties, Omri Casspi is on a box of Corn Flakes
If you want to appear on the cover of a Wheaties box then you better win a championship or a gold medal because Wheaties is the breakfast of champions. In Israel, champions also appear on Corn Flakes (I never could eat Corn Flakes as long as a box of Frosted Flakes was next to it) and that’s why new Houston Rocket Omri Casspi is on the cover. Omri is a two time Israeli Super League Champion and a Israeli Cup winner.
He hasn’t done much in the NBA but he did participate in 2 events at NBA All-Star weekend that nobody remembers: The HORSE game and the Sprite Uncontainable Game (as Kobe’s assistant coach).
