“What surprised me? Probably the biggest thing is the private planes. Wow, that thing’s amazing. 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.’”

—Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Steven Adams at his exit interview, talking about his biggest shock entering the NBA. Transcribed from his exit interview by Anthony Slater at the Oklahoman.

As a guy who grew up in New Zealand and wasn’t that wealthy, I can get the lifestyle shock of coming to the NBA. But this was just a classic answer. You should check out his full exit interview, where he talks about Kendrick Perkins trying to assert his dominance in practice and screaming “I am the only Silverback here.”

    Gotta love the big Kiwi. He is a funny guy hopefully he starts next season.

    And if all the Thunder had to substitute for Perkins was a giant penguin, we´d all root for him…
