Whatever’s become of Steven Adams’ testicles was once again given the Draymond Green treatment, this time at the limbs of a former teammate who shared the Oklahoma City Thunder locker room with the center when the Golden State Warriors big man subjected him to repeated nut mashings in the 2016 playoffs.
During a Sunday afternoon matchup with the Toronto Raptors, a Serge Ibaka drive to the rack resulted in his knees’ finding the Kiwi’s kiwis.

Once all his parts were relocated, the five-year veteran continued to dominate the Raptors’ front line, dropping 25 points on 10-of-13 shooting to go with eight boards and four assists in a 132-125 victory.
Adams —who earlier this season gave Bradley Beal a taste of the medicine he’s been fed so many times before — also goaded Ibaka into this foul and felt so good about it he mugged for a nearby camera.

“Everyday thing, mate. Happens every game,” Adams said of the painful incident before being asked why his nuts seem to be a magnet for opponents’ extremities.
He answered, then didn’t pass up the chance to roast the man he shared a sideline with for three years.
