Tim Duncan is so nice he can trick young players into not guarding him

Steven Adams' interviews continue to be one of the best things about the 2016 NBA playoffs. On Thursday, Adams was asked about what he thought of Tim Duncan, and what Duncan boils down to, according to Adams, is that he's a nice guy, but deceptively so.

"And he's a nice guy. That was my biggest mistake as a rookie. I was like, hitting him all the time, and he was having trouble with it. And then he came over and, like, talked to me a bit. He was like, 'Hey man, how are you?' And I was like, 'Oh, what a nice guy.' Then he just dropped 20 from thereon."

Congratulations, rookie year Steven Adams. You played yourself, but also maybe you can grab a drink with Tim Duncan sometime. He seems like he'd be down for that. The Thunder and Spurs face each other for Game 1 on Saturday.
