Earl Barron really loves his Kansas City BBQ

You'll never guess where he went to lunch before Wednesday's game at the Sprint Center.

As you probably know, the Wizards are in Kansas City today, where they'll be taking on the Heat at the Sprint Center. Since Kansas City usually isn't on the itinerary for NBA players during the season, you figure players would be excited to visit Kansas City's renowned BBQ joints.

Seriously! You don't need to read all through that menu to see that the Smokehouse BBQ Burger is the obvious choice when you head to the Cheesecake Factory, especially in Kansas City.

UPDATE: As Andy Ashby points out on Twitter, Earl Barron played at Memphis in college, so maybe there's more to this Kansas City BBQ snub than we thought.
