How I became a Thunder Fan in New Zealand

Obviously having Steven Adams on the Thunder started it.

I grew up in Hawkes Bay (NZ), never played basketball, never went to a Bay Hawks game (Local BB) and only started taking interest in the NBA since just before the 2013 draft. If you asked me what a pick n roll or a screen was back then, I wouldn't have been able to tell you.

Why do I support Steven Adams? Well, if you are a Kiwi on the other side of the world playing in the toughest basketball competition in the world, then it good to have support. Thanks to NZ Hoops, I also have other kiwis to support now

What are my expectations of Steven Adams? To keep working hard and keep learning.

What are my expectations of the Thunder? To win a NBA Championship.

What are my expectations of myself as a WTLC reader? To provide wacky comments.
