If you’ve watched the Thunder this season, there’s a chance you’ve spotted Adams shaking hands with an invisible man just prior to the start of a game, a straight-faced salutation to no one. No one you can see, anyway. It’s actually the continuation of a ritual Adams shared with Nick Collison, the Thunder lifer who retired after last season, having spent a 14-year career with the franchise, beginning in its final years as the Seattle SuperSonics. Collison had an impact all over the organization, but he particularly clicked with Adams. “In the locker room, off the court, whenever we had group settings together, you could always see the energy between Nick and Steve-O,” Patterson said. “It’s some kind of brotherly love. Everyone saw it. I’m sure they’re in contact every day, and I know that Steve definitely misses Nick, and I know that Nick misses all of us over here.”
Collison, through the Thunder, declined to be interviewed. But Adams confirmed he’s in touch with Collison without saying how often. “Any of the players that’s been here, that you’ve spent time with, that have come through the building, they definitely are missed,” Adams said. “It’s one of those family environments.” … “I miss him,” Adams said. “It’s R.I.P. to him — retire in peace.”
The Oklahoma City Thunder, in partnership with the 2018 deadCenter Film Festival, will premiere a documentary on retiring forward Nick Collison at 9 p.m. Saturday, June 9, during an outdoor screening on the Great Lawn at the Myriad Gardens. The screening will be free and open to the public. Viewers are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets, according to a news release.

In the film, Collison refers to himself and his style of play as “the basketball version of a janitor.” “You gotta dive on the floor, you do it. You gotta set a screen, you do it. Take a hard foul, you do it. That’s what you’re supposed to do and I think that’s just how I play,” he says in the film. The screening of “Mr. Thunder” will be followed by a new documentary, “If I Leave Here Tomorrow,” about the iconic rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, which has Oklahoma ties.
