When it comes down to NBA players in front of a mic, I'm not sure it gets any better than Steven Adams. He's easily the most entertaining figure the league has. The combination of his size, his incredible accent, and the fact that he's just himself at all times and gives no fucks whatosever always plays. To this day his beef commercials are some of my favorite videos on the internet
Whether it's stories about him smashing steaks or drinking a zillion beers, Steven Adams never disappoints. Which is why nobody should be surprised with his answer of how he stays busy in between games. While other guys might say spending time with family, or watching film or literally anything else, of course Steven Adams is elbow deep in his worm farm. It's so perfect and on brand it hurts.
You see how happy he got talking about his worm farm? I can tell you, it's no joke. I have quite the garden setup at my house that we've slowly developed over the last few years. It's actually more of a small farm to be honest. I have everything you could possibly imagine from a billion types of tomatoes and herbs to potatoes, sugar snap peas, strawberries, raspberries, golden berries, greens, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, red onions, green onions, the list goes on and on. Once things are in season I don't have to buy shit from the grocery store, it's fantastic. Homemade San Marzano pizza sauce like you read about. Don't even get me started on the jams and other canning we do at the end of the season. Well to really have a successful operation it's all about your soil and most importantly....worms. When I see worms in my soil it brings me so much joy because I know shit is going to thrive. Mix that in with some black gold from our compost bin and you are really cooking with gas.
So I completely understand why Steven Adams loves his worm farm so much. I don't think he's going mad, that shit is addicting as hell. Once you start to see your produce come in and realize how goddamn delicious it is, you cannot get enough. As someone who starts everything from seeds in my second bedroom under grow lights months before it ever goes in the ground, I don't think he's crazy at all.
Now, was this entire blog just an excuse for me to play this clip from Dumb & Dumber? You be the judge
