    New Orleans Pelicans center Derrick Favors did something a few weeks ago for the first time in his life: He celebrated his birthday during the season. On July 15, the big man turned 29. In normal, non-pandemic times, this would be the offseason.

    Still, Favors looked forward to celebrating with his teammates.

    The rookies sang “Happy Birthday” after practice and Favors was notified that a cake awaited him and his teammates in their meal room. But once they arrived, the cake was gone.

    Someone from outside the team had swiped Favors’ birthday cake.

    Puzzled as to who would do such a thing, the Pelicans had to scramble to make other arrangements. An order of cupcakes was placed for the next day. They were delivered in the morning and stored in the fridge.

    When members of the team went to retrieve the cupcakes, there was only one left. Someone is roaming the bubble stealing baked goods from the Pelicans.

    Yahoo Sports couldn’t confirm if Favors was given the lone cupcake, and it is not certain if the Pelicans are the only victims of the dough heist.

    “The Case of the Cake Bandit” remains a bubble mystery.

    Pelicans about to put choco laxatives in future baked goods. Easy to find out who the cake bandit is, after that.

    I must say this thread could get epic depending on how tricky the cupcake thief gets in the future.

    Everyone is saying Zion , but we are too quickly to underrate Dwight Howard . He’s a consummate professional and a true veteran in the league

    This should be priority #1. Idk why the league tries to hide these scandals under the rug. They need to launch a full investigation of all players that fit the profile of cake lovers.

    With the Pellies being eliminated, I guess there's no conclusion to this unspeakable scandal, since the media won't bother to report on non-relevant teams.

    Derrick Favors is only 29? I thought that dude was in his 30s already as long as he seems to have been in the league.

    Charles has an alibi...Too fat to fit into bubble.

    The closest Charles ever got to a gang was when he was a member of the Cake Bandits as a 12-year-old in Leeds, Alabama. He and his friends would wait for the cake delivery truck at the supermarket. After its wares had been deposited on the loading dock each Sunday night, they’d help themselves. One night the police were waiting. Charles ran through the woods behind the store, barreled into a tree, nearly knocked himself out, scrambled to his feet, ran home and hasn’t stolen anything more significant than a glance since.​

    Why flatter a guy that holds a grudge against the Rockets and deliberately tries to ignore coverage when the team has a good game?
