Watching New Zealand native Steven Adams house hunt in Oklahoma City is delightful

New Orleans Pelicans v Oklahoma City Thunder

Thunder rookie center Steven Adams is quickly emerging as one of the NBA’s most colorful personalities.

The latest evidence is a video of the New Zealand native house hunting in Oklahoma City (hat tip: Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman). Among the highlights:

  • Adams remembering he was considering a farm, but then he realizes that was “a weird thought.”
  • Adams complaining about the size of bathtubs
  • Adams testing a back yard fence by climbing it (my favorite part and also a segment that reminds me of Dwight Schrute inspecting David Wallace’s house)
  • Adams discussing where the clothesline goes

You can watch it here.

I definitely hope Part 2 has more fence climbing.

    He’s better than Perkins, in my opinion.

    It’s not like you’re putting the bar very high …

    This guy is pretty funny. I knew he had a sense of humor when he shook his own hand after Byron Mullens wouldn’t shake his. Ha.

    The Kiwi is quickly becoming a huge fan favorite. And…the kid can play.

      Yes he can. Everyone thought he’d be a project (and he is to a degree still), but he is playing better than almost everyone thought.

      Who knows what his ceiling will be but he’s started off better than most thought he would.

      Seems like a good kid too.

        A lot of people though Drummond might be a project of sorts too. Some guys are just better suited to the NBA than college I guess.

    For real, in New Zealand they DO use clotheslines, whereas here in America it’s seen as declasse.

    “I knew it.”
