Kiwi Adams tells Iggy to respect his culture as Team USA left bemused by dance…
Oklahoma City Thunder star Steven Adams didn’t take too kindly to Andre Iguodala’s dig at New Zealand’s Haka dance, and he let him know about it on Twitter.
Ahead of their encounter at the FIBA World Cup on Tuesday, the Kiwi squad performed the traditional ‘Haka’ dance which seemed to particularly worry the likes of Kenneth Faried and James Harden.
It received a significant response on social media with Harden in particular being picked out for his bewildered look, but it undoubtedly brought some character and passion to the tournament.
While the majority of the USA team then applauded when they had finished, not everyone was impressed with it with Golden State Warriors star Iguodala making light of the performance.
However, it didn’t go down well with Adams who saw his post on Twitter and responded and demanded that he took his culture more seriously.
Iguodala has yet to respond and it remains to be seen if he has anything to say or retracts his comment, but the Thunder vs the Warriors could be fun in the new season…
