Adams knew virtually nothing about the NBA when he arrived. One of his brothers had an old video game he played as a kid. In the game, the best player was Peja Stojakovic, Adams says. And his brother had a poster of Larry Bird. So when Adams started playing, it was a lot of shrugging and no deference, which unnerved a long list of opponents. During his rookie season, Nate Robinson punched him in the stomach. Vince Carter elbowed him in the side of the head. Jordan Hamilton punched him in the shoulder. Larry Sanders elbowed him in the neck. Zach Randolph punched him in the jaw, a move that got Randolph suspended for Game 7 of the Thunder’s first-round playoff series with the Memphis Grizzlies two years ago.
Aldridge said playing alongside plus-defensive players like Leonard, Tim Duncan and Danny Green has helped unleash his inner stopper. “Pop is a very defensive-minded guy,” Aldridge said. “So I think knowing that I have guys behind me like Tim and Kawhi and Tony (Parker) that have Pop on them too just makes it easier for me.” If Aldridge is key to the Spurs’ erasure of Randolph now, that has its roots nearly a decade ago in Portland. Randolph was 25 then, in the midst of a career season that would nevertheless see him traded to New York in the summer of 2007.
