Steven Adams’ Disgusting Way Of Annoying Opponents


Mind games and trash-talk play a very important role in the NBA. If you manage to get under your opponent’s skin or even make them lose their sh*t, you’ll end up winning the matchup one way or the other.

We know that players like Kobe Bryant, Dennis Rodman, Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, Kevin Garnett and many more were masters of the trash-talk. They were able to destroy an opponent not only during the game, but in game breaks as well.

Other players who are not as talkative or possibly as creative have to find other ways to get into their opponent’s head. Steven Adams for example has a pretty disgusting way of annoying his opponents.

He just whips his long, sweaty hair at opponents during games. Per Hamish McNeilly of Stuff:


One had asked Adams how sweaty his hair got during NBA games. The Oklahoma City Thunder player confirmed it got very sweaty and “it is real gross”.

However, when it was tied in a ponytail he used it to his own advantage, flicking the sweat-soaked hair at defenders.

“It whips them in the eye and they get really mad,” he said
