OKC Thunder players Chirs Paul, Steven Adams and Darius Bazley use social media to entertain fans.
A trio of OKC Thunder players take to social media to entertain fans with music, shot-making combined with an important message and sharing insights on why two friends never became teammates.
Adams gets musical on social media:
Players are just like the rest of us trying to find things to do while physically distancing and being holed up inside. New Zealand native Steven Adams took to social media this week to show off his guitar playing skills.
This was in response to the Spurs Australian guard Patty Mills who had been doing the same online and inviting others to join him.
Adams posted his with a row of New Zealand flags all across the top of his tweet (and an NSFW gesture at the end of his video). Both are decent guitar players but the one big takeaway is looking at how small Adams’ guitar looks in his hands compared to Mills.
Granted there is ample size difference between the two but Steven’s guitar looks like a child’s guitar in comparison. Mills seemingly picked up on this with his response to Adams calling the guitar a ukulele.
Bazley hits shot and uses opportunity to deliver COVID-19 PSA:
Arguably the OKC Thunder player who has taken to social media the most during the hiatus is rookie Darius Bazley. We’ve witnessed his Tik Tok videos of him dancing as well as posts on his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
His most recent post is featured on his Instagram account showing him hitting a shot with a miniature ball in his house and then has a friend interview him on the shot. He play acts like it’s a real game and then takes viewers with him into the water closet where he advises everyone conscientiously makes sure to keep washing their hands.
Paul and Wade talk the real reason why CP3 never made it to Miami:
Many felt the Big 3 who ended up in Miami would include someone other than Bosh and at the time it was speculated either Carmelo Anthony or Chris Paul were the true targets of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Again this past offseason there was scuttlebutt the Miami Heat were interested in having Chris Paul added to the club. In an entertaining social media exchange between Wade and Paul, they discuss the “true” reason why the veteran guard never landed in Miami.
Both players wear the number 3 jersey so CP3 jokes they don’t call you DW3 and what was I supposed to become CP6?
The banana boat and wine drinking buddies clearly are having fun in this exchange and it’s safe to say OKC Thunder fans sure are happy the veteran didn’t end up in South Beach given the Clutch Time Killer Crew that Paul is the captain of.
Now, let’s just hope the team gets an opportunity to return this season and see precisely how far they can push the team in the postseason.
