According to the Norman Transcript’s Fred Katz, Adams practices free-throws by having a Thunder assistant coach randomly surprise him with an upper-cut in the stomach. Adams practices free-throws like this to simulate an actual game setting.
Hey, if you really want to get better at something, you have to go balls to the wall with it, that’s how life works.
Maybe Andre Drummond, Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan should be doing this… Maybe they wouldn’t be as much of a liability to their teams…
If this works, Thunder assistants should RKO Thunder players while they shoot 3’s because they couldn’t toss a pebble into the ocean last year.
Overall, Steven Adams is a weird guy, that is for sure. He looks like the Geico caveman if he was 7 feet tall. Not a very surprising thing for Steven Adams to do. But, if he shoots 80% from the stripe, he’s a genius.
