When asked what surprised him most about his first year in the NBA, the team’s private jet naturally came to mind.
“Wow, that thing’s amazing,” he said.
“Got all the food on there, a bunch of drinks. I don’t know. It’s just amazing. Never seen nothing like it. Tables, tables on planes. That’s amazing. That was probably the biggest ‘whoa’ for me, like, ‘I made it.’ This big private jet, you’re like ‘whoa.’” When the question whether it would be difficult to fly under the radar in his home country of New Zealand arose in the off-season, Adams said he is preparing for the worst.
“I actually bought a face mask,” he said. “I don’t know if you’ve seen it. I tweeted it once. It’s like a Balaclava. So I got that. I might wear that around. But it’s going to be ridiculous, probably, because I like to be out a lot. I got a lot of restaurants I like to eat at, smash out some food.”
Hey, the guy loves food. And smashing it out.
But rest easy, Thunder fans.
Adams takes the game of basketball very seriously. When asked if he plans to play in the NBA’s summer league, Adams responded with an assertive, “Hell yeah.”
