Adams ’smashes steaks’

Manawatu Standard - - Sport -

Steven Adams was raised on Kiwi beef and lamb, but the NBA bas­ket­ball star says he ‘‘smashes’’ Amer­i­can steaks. The Ok­la­homa Thun­der cen­tre has fea­tured in a 30-sec­ond tele­vi­sion com­mer­cial for the Ok­la­homa Beef Com­mis­sion, ex­tolling his love of red meat. Adams – seated on a truck’s tail gate – said, in his quintessen­tially Kiwi ac­cent (sup­ported by sub-ti­tles): ‘‘Mate, I eat beef all the time, I smash steaks all the bloody time, mate. Adams then hopped off the truck and, grip­ping a bas­ket­ball em­bla­zoned with a ‘Beef’ logo, said: ‘‘I just smash them be­cause they taste really good.’’
