Steven Adams is owning the NBA bubble already

Allegedly, we’re going to get NBA basketball back. The league is restarting in Orlando, FL which is currently the COVID-19 hotspot of America. They are trying to have a ‘bubble’ at Disney World to finish out the season, but that’s no guarantee that players won’t get infected by staff, or from James Harden sneaking out to a strip club and catching it.

All of the players have been arriving over the last week and doing their media appearances. There’s already been a few shenanigans, but of course Steven Adams has been being his weird self and making waves on NBA Twitter. For starters, this is how he arrived:

Everyone else has designer brand luggage. Steven Adams has… takeout bags from Good Egg and a guitar case. I have no idea what is in his backpack, but it’s probably an Xbox and some hunting knives and survival gear. There’s one thing we can confirm he brought with him:

Yes, even though he is staying at an all-inclusive fancy resort at Disney World with meals catered every day, he brought a bag full of lasagna. I love that even as a kiwi that’s his comfort food. He goes into it a big in this clip, and also his minimal guitar skills:

Participating in this NBA bubble sounds hard. Yes, they’re all rich guys who play ball for a living, but being away from your family for months like this seems like it must be tough. Steven Adams seems like the kinda guy who’s built for the situation, though. When he’s not working out, it seems like all he does is woodshed with his guitar and play Fortnite, so he can rough it out.

In other Thunder news, the only story more unlikely to me than the league getting sidetracked by a virus, Andre Roberson is BACK!

I honestly did not expect him to return this season, so the extra time off gave Roberson enough of a window to heal up and come back. There’s no telling if he’s still got those elite defender chops like before, but it damn sure won’t hurt to have him on the squad.

It’s impossible to know how this experiment of the NBA relaunching is going to turn out, but I feel like the Thunder still have a shot to make a deep play-off run. They started the season off with everyone thinking they would tank, and are currently the 5 seed. It’s probably not gonna be the year they get their first title, but as long as this bubble experiment works, it’ll be exciting to see some more basketball this summer.

  1. It is common to test politicians as to whether they’re someone you’d “like to have a beer with.”

    More than with most public figures, I would like to have a beer with Steven Adams.


    1. Ask yourself this. Should I drink a brew with….Steven & Andre….or..
      Skeletor & In-Hock? (Kevin Schitt is not currently available).


  2. “What is your ‘Spaghetti Policy’ here?”


  3. “Participating in this NBA bubble sounds hard. Yes, they’re all rich guys who play ball for a living, but being away from your family for months like this seems like it must be tough. Steven Adams seems like the kinda guy who’s built for the situation, though.”

    really? this sounds hard?
    Have you never met someone who has been deployed in the armed forces?
    They too spend months away from family (often times while someone is trying to shoot them) but their catered meals come from the mess hall – not the gourmet chefs some of these guys have flown in. Unfortunately, they don’t make the kind of money defending the country that these guys make because they are tall and make baskets.

    Eating catered meals at Disney World while earning millions playing a game isn’t tough.


    1. “What about…”


    2. Ya know, It is possible for more than one thing to be tough


      1. Yep but an NBA player’s life is not one of those things


    3. “Imagine being stranded on a desert island. You don’t even have the luxury of squad mates to talk to. There’s no mess hall or commissary and don’t get paid at all!!! You don’t even get any down time because if you’re not focused on your own survival, you will die alone and no one will probably ever find you. And you don’t even get any randos on the internet randomly extolling your virtues for virtual brownie points!”

      Just because one person’s suck might suck less than another person’s suck doesn’t mean that they both don’t have things that suck. Suck isn’t a limited commodity, anyone can have a suck and, in fact, everyone does at some point.


    4. I think the toughest thing about being in the military is that the leader of the country you serve is someone who continually praises a country that pays bounties to have you killed. That must be really tough. Please tell me about your level of concern about this problem.


  4. What is not to love about Steve Adams?
