Steven Adams shown up by his Thunder assistant coach

Steven Adams is looking more than relaxed in camp with Oklahoma City before the start of the NBA season, taking time out of his heavy training schedule to school one of the Thunder assistant coaches Mark Bryant.

However, the former veteran forward - who played for no less than 10 NBA franchises - showed the buoyant Kiwi that while he may be long retired, he wasn't to be messed with.

And the 51-year-old, along with superstar teammate Russell Westbrook, let Adams know all about it.

It was a typically humorous response from Adams when reporters asked him about the exchange.

"He's so top heavy," he said. "He's got no legs and that makes him really annoying to go up against, he's so strong up top."

"But I don't want to talk about it."
