Steven Adams drops legendary quote about waved-off game-winner
Oklahoma City center Steven Adams is truly a Tongan treasure.
Adams and the Thunder lost at home in devastating fashion to the Dallas Mavericks in Game 2 on Monday night, after the mustached maestro had a game-winner waved off after review, giving the Mavs a narrow one-point win.

When asked about the buzzer-beater that wasn’t after practice on Tuesday, Adams responded with this gem, per Royce Young of ESPN:

As if the playoff-themed mustache wax endorsement wasn’t enough, here’s further proof that Adams might be the coolest dude in the NBA.
With an illustrious list of talents that already includes “menacing interior defender,” “persistent rebound muncher,” and “suave facial hair spokesperson,” Adams can now add “clever one-liner virtuoso” (which he actually already has quite the reputation as) and “charming relationship expert” to his resumé. True legend.
