Watch: Steven Adams talks sister Valerie, hair cuts, nut shots

New, comments

Steven Adams waxes poetic on watching his sister compete in the Olympics, as well as some of the trials and anticipations of the upcoming Thunder season.

@The Top Story

Steven Adams gives his now-standard "O for Awesome" interview with some random guy in the pop-a-shot room where Adams is promoting a sports drink (a campaign which I am guessing was probably fueled by Adams’ delight in receiving a lifetime supply of the sports drink).

Among the highlights:

  • Adams is extremely proud of his big sister Valerie, who won silver at the Olympic Games (see the chryon).
  • Adams’ nuts took a beating, but he thinks it’s awesome that people are still talking about it.
  • Adams decided to stop getting haircuts because they cost too much. Given that he will make $3 million next season, I find this type of ownership over keeping track of finances encouraging. Besides, we all know that money is going straight toward his food budget anyway.
  • I find it fascinating that Powerade’s promo features Adams shooting a jump shot. Remember me by this jump shot.
  • He is inspired by his teammates, who just want to come in and work hard next season without concern for who gets credit.
  • Steven has an appropriate response for people who think he is Australian.
  • Will Adams ever play for the Tall Blacks? Yeah, definitely.

  • Making Adams a part of the regular post-game presser is one of the best things that Russell Westbrook could do this season. Make it happen, Russ!
