Steven Adams Gave A Legendary Response To Reporter Saying He Was ‘Very Large’: “Are You Saying I’m Fat? Watch Yourself.”

Steven Adams Gave A Legendary Response To Reporter Saying He Was ‘Very Large’: “Are You Saying I’m Fat? Watch Yourself.”

Steven Adams is one of the most likable players in the NBA. The soft-spoken Kiwi has been in the league for 9 years now and has found moderate success as a reliable big man who can help contribute to a team with big minutes.

But Adams' warm and friendly demeanor off the court has made him incredibly popular, as very few fans and players have ever had a negative word to say about him. Adams is also incredibly funny, as he showed during a recent press interaction.

During a press conference for the Memphis Grizzlies, one reporter asked Steven Adams about his size and presence on the court, calling him a 'big guy' and 'very large'.

Adams hilariously responded by asking whether the reporter was calling him fat, and joked that the reporter needed to be careful about what he said next. Adams chose to have fun with the reporter during the press conference.

Reporter: "Steven, you're a big guy, I'm curios to know..."

Adams: "What do you mean by big, mate?"

Reporter: "Very large."

Adams: "Are you saying I'm fat? Watch yourself."

Steven Adams made his return to the Grizzlies during Game 4 of their series against the Golden State Warriors. Adams returned just as Ja Morant was ruled out for presumably the rest of the series due to a bone bruise.

Adams provided them with much-needed size, as he was their best rebounder on the night, and throughout the course of the regular season.

But the Warriors were able to get the better of the Grizzlies, and were better than the entire team on the glass, despite being significantly undersized compared to Memphis. 

The Grizzlies will be hoping to get a win back in Game 5, and possibly push the series to a Game 7, where they will have homecourt advantage. But Memphis will have to do so without Ja Morant, their best player.
