Why the mustache? Steven Adams: I was just about to say, I'm accepting no questions about the 'stache. ... I don't know. I'd seen Tom Selleck, got inspired. It's a look I'm going for. Was it kinda a media day thing to have your picture with a stache all year? Steven Adams: Honestly, that's all it was - so when they call out my name, it's just "stache," or when someone opens up the book: "stache." It's gonna be so good. Oklahoman

Is Andre Iguodala on your list for this season, for what happened this summer? (Iguodala poked fun at New Zealand traditional pregame dance - the haka - during the FIBA World Cup, Adams seemingly took offense on Twitter, saying "@andre, show some respect for my culture.") Steven Adams: Oh, he’s alright. He's all good. I just read (Iguodala's comments) in the morning and it kinda got to me. It wasn't like anything bad or anything. It was just misinformed, I guess. I knew he meant it not to downplay New Zealand. I just thought differently about it. Hopefully he come down to New Zealand. He’s still a good dude. Oklahoman

We talked at summer league about you wanting to become a more polished offensive player. How’s that going, and do you feel like you’re better now than you were at summer league? Steven Adams: I mean, yeah, I’ve definitely seen improvements now from summer league. But there’s still a long way to go. I’m on the right track, though, I guess you could say that. But as I’ve said before, it’s still a part of what I’m learning. They’re still developing it. That’s one of the main focuses, but it’s still based around defense. Are you ready to get going now, or could you use a little more time for yourself? Steven Adams: I want it to come, but I want the time that I have now to really work on my game. I can’t wait until it comes but I just really need this time. Oklahoman

Had you ever been to Taiwan? Steven Adams: No. This is the first time. And I’ve been trying to get as cultured as possible. How’s that going? What’s the experience like over there? Steven Adams: Oh, it’s really cool. All the people are really nice. And the food is really good here. Really good. I love the food here. That’s one of the things they pride themselves on, good food. And I love eating. Peas and carrots. What’s the best meal you’ve had? Steven Adams: It’s this place called Din Tai Fung. That’s this really well known dumpling place, and they have, honestly, the best food out. It’s so tasty. So, so good. Straight up. You haven’t lived life if you haven’t had it. I’m dead serious.

Darnell Mayberry: A lot of the younger players have been (in Oklahoma City) for most of the summer. They get away for stretches throughout the summer but return to work with the coaching staff. Guys like Mitch McGary, Steven Adams, Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones have spent the majority of their time here. What they're working on is anyone's guess. Oklahoman
