Fans of the NBA have come to know and love jovial big man Steven Adams over the course of his impressive career.

With his Oklahoma City Thunder very much in the playoff picture in the the Western Conference, the talented center is gearing up for the restart of the 2019-20 season.

In a recent Zoom call, Adams said that he spent a portion of the NBA’s hiatus doing farm work on his family’s farm in New Zealand. He added that he managed to stay in game shape by “boxing out cows.”

Adams has spent his entire NBA career on the Thunder since being selected by the team 12th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft.

This season, the 6-foot-11 behemoth is averaging 10.9 points, 9.4 boards and 2.4 assists per game.

While his points-per-game average this season is the lowest it has been since the 2015-16 campaign, his assists-per-game average this season is the best of his career.

Currently, the Thunder sit at the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference.

Surely, Adams will play a major role in any success the Thunder enjoy once the season starts back up later this month.
