Missing one game due to calf tightness, Adams slipped back into the lineup seamlessly, picking up a double double (11 points, 13 rebounds) in the Pelicans' 123-101 win over the Phoenix Suns. 

His performance wasn't the only talking point however, with basketball fans noticing his trademark no-frills pre-game outfit along with his haul of Kiwi confectionery.

In an image posted to the Pelicans' Twitter page, Adams could be seen sporting a loose fitting t-shirt, shorts and slides while carrying a block of Whittaker's chocolate and other distinctly down-under treats. 

One Twitter user said "@RealStevenAdams I see that block of @WhittakersNZ Almond Gold chocolate and that young bag of @NaturalCo jelly snakes, you ain't slick bro"

Another said, "Rocking up with Whittakers Chocolate, Natural Confectionery Co Gummy Snakes and special occasion Jandals. Kiwi as."
