The cooks at BurgerMaster probably gulped a bit when they looked up and saw Jim McIlvaine and Gheorghe Muresan coming their way.
Two of the biggest men in the NBA Muresan is 7 feet, 7 inches while McIlvaine is 7-1 - are two of the bigger friends in the league, having become close the past two years while with the Washington Bullets.
Friday night’s game between the Bullets and Sonics was the first time the two played against each other. Muresan missed the first meeting between the teams in November with the flu. The Bullets got to town Thursday and McIlvaine showed Muresan around, including a visit to BurgerMaster.
What did they eat? Uh, dumb question. “Hamburgers, I guess,” McIlvaine said with an are-you-kidding look.
