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 f...ing 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.
