Kiwi Steve in the NBA #17: The Many (Fixable) Problems with the OKC Thunder Right Now

Last time it was a full on look at how Steven Adams has been tracking against the criticism that’s come back his way in recent times. Mostly from frustrated fans, to be fair.

Kiwi Steve in the NBA #10: Getting Back Up To Scratch

It’s been a couple weeks since the last Kiwi Steve update, a couple weeks too many to go through with all them game recaps or whatever.
