Adams voted one of the dirtiest player's in NBA

Steven Adams has been voted one of the dirtiest players in the NBA after a vote by players and coaches in the league.

In an anonymous poll, Adams was ranked the second dirtiest behind Cleveland point guard Metthew Dellavedova, who is an Aussie.

Third dirtiest player was another Aussie, Golden State Warriors centre Andrew Bogut.

So it seems, we are rather dirty down under - at least when it comes to the NBA.

"The stuff that he does is not cool," an anonymous coach said about Adams. "He throws elbows, extra hitting dudes away from the ball, hitting them with the chicken wing [elbow] and trying to get a rise out of them. That kind of stuff."

A player from a Western Conference team was quoted saying, "He's real physical, but he crosses the line with stuff. He'll throw a sneaky elbow, push you in the back and foul you extra hard."
