Clippers' Chris Douglas-Roberts recently became a vegetarian

Clippers guard Chris Douglas-Roberts recently became a vegetarian

Chris Douglas-Roberts separated himself from most NBA players by requesting short shorts this season.

There’s another thing that differentiates him from most of his colleagues -- he’s a vegetarian.

Douglas-Roberts said that he stopped eating meat, fish and poultry about two years ago.

“I feel great,” he said. “You just see differences in your everyday life.”

The shooting guard said that changing his diet has had a positive impact on his performance.

“I don’t really feel tired,” he said.

Douglas-Roberts, 27, has been sidelined with a strained right Achilles' tendon since late November. The small forward had been averaging two points and 1.8 rebounds in 11.3 minutes over four games. He has a career average of 7.3 points and 2.2 rebounds in 20.2 minutes a game.
