Steven Adams savagely trolls ex-teammate Enes Kanter
Steven Adams savagely trolled his former Stache Brother when they squared off against each other on Wednesday night.
Adams’ Oklahoma City Thunder hosted Enes Kanter’s New York Knicks and got out to be a big lead in the first half. Kanter subbed into the game midway through the first quarter, and it didn’t take long for Adams to trash talk him.
During a stoppage in play, Adams told Knicks coach David Fizdale to sub Kanter out because he can’t play defense.

Steven Adams just told David Fizdale re: Kanter: “Sub him out. He doesn’t know how to play defense. We’re running pick and roll every time. Sub him out.”

Kanter is in his second season with the Knicks since being traded there as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal. He has maintained love for his old team, and even for Adams. Maybe this type of competition will change his opinion.
Since starting the season 0-4, the Thunder have taken advantage of a weak schedule and gone 8-1, even winning games without Russell Westbrook in the lineup.
