    How many people are going to hit Steven Adams this season?

  • Max

    I’d say 9 if they make a deep playoff run.

  • Max

    Is this really worthy of an ejection tho?

  • sounddust

    I like how Adams just shrugged it off like a man, instead of collapsing like he just got shot by a .357

    I think throwing a punch, no matter how soft or if it connects, is an automatic ejection.

  • Dfrance

    I just don’t get why he punched him. Yes the pick was a little cheap, but your natural reaction is to throw a punch at the guy? You’re playing basketball man.

    freal, i remember the vince carter elbow…. i think this guy just irritates a lot of people…. decent player though

  • jaceking

    i think u right here. no matter how hard or soft, they eject just to make sure it doesn’t escalate.

    but really… that wasn’t worth it.. that was like a frustration “get outta here” punch.. didnt wind up, there was no force behind it.

    check out when vince carter or whoever it was elbowed him in the face. he didn’t even flinch

  • spit hot fiyah

    this might be my favorite player in the league. his demeanor is boss all the way around. gets elbowed and punched and acts like it was the wind blowing.

  • yeahboi!

    Cause he plays Rubgy, a very physical sport. Those shots from Carter and Hamilton were nothing for him!

  • ortiz
