Thunder's Steven Adams, Andre Roberson Attend High School Football Practice

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistSeptember 15, 2016

In their precious free time before reporting to NBA training camp, the Oklahoma City Thunder's Steven Adams and Andre Roberson invaded Heritage Hall's high school football practice.

Adams, who started off in sandals before going barefoot, entered with little football knowledge. The 7-foot center discussed his newfound appreciation for the sport after throwing a few passes to his Thunder teammate.

"It's actually really difficult," Adams said. "I'm a rugby guy, but I actually appreciate it more. ... Yeah, these guys are amazing as well."

A defensive specialist on the basketball court, Roberson tried to shine on offense for a change. At least he wore sneakers.

Both players elevated their games during the postseason, when the Thunder pushed the Golden State Warriors to the limit in an epic seven-game Western Conference Finals series. Now that Kevin Durant has joined the enemy, they'll need to evolve even more this season.
