WASHINGTON — Anybody who has kept up with Wizards center Marcin Gortat and his antics, especially in the offseason, won’t be surprised to learn he now has a giraffe, apparently.
Per his Twitter account, Gortat now owns a giraffe and two horses.
He mentions that “one day they will be a champs [sic],” which presumably refers to the horses, but who knows, maybe Gortat has plans to enter his pet giraffe in some sort of competition.
This is the same man who walked a pig through a mall in Poland, let’s not forget.
Gortat also has a giraffe named after him at the Warsaw zoo, which he fed last month. No word yet on whether or not it’s the same giraffe, or if Gortat was simply inspired by his namesake and went out and got his own.
