In this week’s episode of NBA players doing normal people things (patent pending), Steven Adams sets off to find himself a crib in Oklahoma City. There are so many great things about this video, from
Aussie Steve Adams being outraged at the absence of an outdoor clothes line to being disappointed with the kitchen sink water pressure and even suggesting he thought he might buy a farm to live on instead.
I don’t know why this video exists, but i’m so very glad it does.

Here’s Zsa Zsa Pachulia’s auditioning for the modernised role of “Where’s Waldo”… Gone is the Red & White striped jumper to stand out, Zsa Zsa prefers to go for the incognito style beige jacket.
After the Orlando Magic defeated the Sixers today, it was time for their time honored tradition of of having some players carve a turkey post-game, in honor of Thanksgiving.
Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis and Nic Vucevic got the call up and Big Baby did not disappoint on two counts:
- Instead of carving the turkey, he simply tears the leg off, Man v Food /caveman style; and
- My favorite part of this video, when Big Baby is asked by Magic play-by play man, David Steele what his favorite Thanksgiving side dish is, with a mouthful of turkey all he can do is scream MACARONI!!!…………trust me, you will never get sick of watching it.

After becoming the first ever team in the professional rugby era to go a calendar year undefeated, the New Zealand All Blacks finished up their busy European Tour with a stop over in New York City & did what every tourist does when they go to ‘the Big Apple’… Head down to the NBA Store!
All Blacks Israel Dagg, Ma’a Nonu, Liam Messam, Richie McCaw, Sam Whitelock, Aaron Smith & Dan Carter had a look around the store & even caught up with NBA Commissioner in waiting, Adam Silver for a chat & a few happy-snaps.
Check out what went down:
Flankers Messam & Whitelock’s positions in the test squad may be in doubt if the All Blacks find some way to hire .LEGO Man Garnett’ in time for the 2014 Rugby Championship…
Watch out Steve Adams, Thomas Abercrombie & Kirk Penney!!! With ball-skills like this, Nonu & Dagg may be vying for your spots in the upcoming FIBA World Cup!
Of course, no visit to the NBA Store is complete without the customary jersey handover with NBA Deputy Commissioner, Adam Silver. This got me thinking, if Adam Silver played rugby? What position would he be?
I’d like to think of him as a rangey Outside Centre.
Over the past few seasons we have seen just how big an impact positive vibes from the bench can lift a teams spirit. From Robert Sacre’s sweet dance moves, to Patty Mills’ fine work with the towel wave, sending some love from the bench with the towel can really pump up the team.
…….Or if your Marcin Gortat, and you shoot 3-10 from the field and your team loses to the Toronto Raptors, feel free to make that towel pay, Hulk style.
Trevor Ariza’s reaction in the background says it all.
