Graffiti artist pays tribute to Kiwi basketball star

New Zealand’s Steven Adams is arguably one of the most famous Kiwi sportsmen in the world right now, playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder and helping them to the NBA play-offs.



International graffiti artists Mr G, or Graham Hoete, took his cans of spray paint to OKC to put up a huge mural of his fellow Kiwi, saying he couldn’t go to the US (he was there to do a mural of Muhammad Ali) and not pay tribute to Adams.

Adams, meanwhile, is in New Zealand for the Wellington Sports Awards, after which he met with a few All Blacks players. He was taller than Sam Whitelock, who stands at 2.03m.
