  • - I mean, it's got some good food in there.

  • It's just a cool spot, like,

  • they got a little bit of everything.

  • - [Narrator] The NBA's obsession

  • with The Cheesecake Factory is well-documented.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves is known

  • to take his teammates out for cheesecake.

  • While Russell Westbrook calls

  • their brown breadthe BOMB.com”.

  • There was even once a Twitter account dedicated to tracking

  • NBA player sightings at the chain.

  • The love has also trickled down to celebrities

  • linked to the league.

  • The Kardashians have been captured

  • at Cheesecake by Just Jared, US Weekly and X17.

  • And Drake, who serves as global ambassador

  • for the Toronto Raptors,

  • even featured it in one of his music videos.

  • So, why is it that so many of them are obsessively flocking

  • to a casual dining chain typically found in shopping malls?

  • For one, it could be that The Cheesecake Factory

  • has locations surrounding every NBA city.

  • Meaning players can eat there whether they're at home

  • or traveling for an away game.

  • And since it's a chain, the food is typically

  • pretty consistent whether you're in LA, Chicago or Dallas.

  • - The Cheesecake Factory for the players, I'd say,

  • represents, one: familiarity.

  • 41 games out of the regular season they're on the road.

  • So, they wanna eat food that they know is good

  • and they know they can rely on it.

  • You know, when they go to play in their hometown

  • their friends and their family are gonna come out

  • and they wanna go eat somewhere that can accommodate

  • all of them.

  • So, they're going to Cheesecake Factory

  • and they're taking them all there.

  • It's just a really good, dope scene.

  • - [Narrator] Also, as anyone who's ever been

  • to The Cheesecake Factory knows,

  • the menu is so big it's spiral-bound.

  • With dishes ranging from filet mignon to Tex-Mex egg rolls

  • and the portions are notoriously oversized.

  • - It can get real bad in there.

  • Like, you can get 8,000 calories on a meal in there.

  • - I try to try something different every time but,

  • you know, I could eat the same thing every single time.

  • - My go to is the egg roll, the Tex, yeah, yeah.

  • I get that all the time.

  • - Buffalo Blast is probably the best things on the menu.

  • - [Narrator] Aside from huge portions,

  • what else keeps players going back

  • to The Cheesecake Factory night after night?

  • - A lot of these guys are huge.

  • You look at Draymond Green, you look at Demarcus Cousins,

  • these are borderline seven-footers.

  • And, they're not skinny, these are big guys.

  • Cheesecake Factory has the seating arrangements

  • in a way that you could sit down and it's not a tiny seat.

  • These guys need space, they need to lay their bodies out

  • and have a good time and Cheesecake Factory has that space.

  • - [Narrator] So, for all the fans hoping to catch a glimpse

  • of their favorite NBA player, The Cheesecake Factory

  • might be almost as good as the court itself.

  • - Do I like The Cheesecake Factory?

  • Yeah, I like The Cheesecake Factory, man,

  • they got so much good food.

  • Can we go there right now?

  • Let's go.

  • - Yo, it's big, so he's like, yeah, you gotta help me.

  • (laughing)

  • So, I tried a piece and, yo, the rest is really history.

  • - What are you looking for, like, in a pizza?

- I mean, it's got some good food in there.
