It appears Steven Adams' daunting physicality has extended further than just on an NBA court after the OKC Thunder star featured in an online parody series of Game of Thrones as a warrior.
Bleacher Report's Game of Zones is based of the popular HBO show but centres around major NBA story lines taking place throughout the season.
In it's fourth season premier released today, the first story the parody focused on was superstar Kevin Durant's decision in the off-season to leave Oklahoma City for the Golden State Warriors.
Durant, appearing as a knight in the series, addresses an emotional Dothraki soldier in Enes Kanter questioning why his teammate has to leave.
"I'm a free agent now."
Durant advises Kanter that Adams will still be there.
"Your 'stache brother Steven will take look after you now. You will be in good hands."
Adams, another Dothraki soldier, comforts Kanter before wishing Durant the best in an accent more Australian than Kiwi, but differing regardless.
The series is a popular feature on YouTube for NBA fans, gaining over one million views on each episode after it's released.
Adams and a Durant-less Thunder play the Houston Rockets in game three of their NBA playoffs series tomorrow in Oklahoma at 1:30pm NZT.
They currently trail 0-2 in the series after losing the opening two games of the best-of-seven series in Houston.
"Maybe this has galvanised them, hearing each other's stories and knowing they are not alone," say the nurses behind the Facebook group, New Zealand, please hear our voice.
