Adams takes out frustration on NBA hoop

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 27/02/2017

© ASSOCIATED PRESS New Zealand's Steven Adams has built a reputation on keeping his cool in the heat of the NBA.

A missed free throw shot was all it took to push Oklahoma City Thunder centre Adams over the edge, resulting in a potty-mouthed clip which threatens to go viral.

The object of his anger? The hoop.

When Adams missed a free throw late in the Thunder's 118-110 over the New Orleans Pelicans he glared at the source of his frustration.

"I hate you so much," he clearly says, before also missing his second shot.

It was a blip in another strong contribution for the towering Kiwi, who scored 13 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to record a 13th double-double for the season.
