Scott Brooks Rumors
There’s no “NBA’s Strongest Man” contest where players lift Jumbotrons or heave backboards onto the upper concourse, but among peers and people around the league, Adams is widely considered the NBA’s strongman, a walking concrete wall of power and physicality. “That guy is the strongest, most physical guy in the league,” says Wizards coach Scott Brooks, who coached Adams for two seasons in OKC.
Brooks himself can recall what it was like to be on a minor league team when someone from the NBA was in attendance. “I just remember that our coach would say ‘there are scouts here,'” Brooks told NBC Sports Washington. “When you’re in the minor leagues, your goal is to be in the majors. You want to be in the NBA. You know it can take just one coach or one scout to give you that opportunity. So, when I go watch our Go-Go play, I take it seriously because I was in that position.”
Fred Katz: Scott Brooks said the team celebrated in the locker room after Sato’s first career trip doub: “His first triple-double is cool to see. Everybody enjoyed it. That’s what you have to do, celebrate your teammates’ success.”
