Big Kiwi NBA star Steven Adams may have a new trick up his sleeve when the 2018/19 season tips off next month.
The Oklahoma City Thunder centre was at his entertaining best on Tuesday (NZT) at OKC's pre-season media day.
The charismatic 25-year-old kept reporters entertained during a 12-minute stint at the podium including admitting he is an "awkward Kiwi bloke".
But it was a basketball matter that raised a few eyebrows, after video emerged of Adams attempting and netting a corner three-pointer during practice.
When pressed on whether Thunder fans can expect the Rotorua native to be draining three-point bombs this season, Adams remained coy.
"Shoot a three? No, absolutely not," said Adams.
"Maybe preseason, I've got to see mate - don't want to lose my job. It's tough."
The Thunder begin their 2018/2019 NBA pre-season at home next month on October 4 against the Detroit Pistons.
