This past weekend, Golden State Warriors wing Klay Thompson participated in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” presented by Fanatics. When asked who we would include on his survival team if he was stuck on a deserted island, his first answer was Oklahoma City Thunder big man Steven Adams.

Thompson also included Karl Malone for hunting and teammate Steph Curry for his problem solving, but I think we can all agree that his assessment of Adams was spot on.

The 28-year-old said he doesn’t know Adams all that well, but was extremely complimentary when discussing his game. “He sets hard screens,” said Thompson. “He’s annoying to play against ... he’s huge.”

The Thunder meet the Warriors again in March at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
