Mini Steven Adams doppelganger: Most adorable Thunder fan ever (pics)
Steven Adams has been an integral figure in these NBA playoffs for the Oklahoma City Thunder. And one needn’t look any further for how he’s become a fan favorite than a youngster who became a mini doppelganger of the New Zealand import by rocking a faux mustache and tattoo while sporting a “Lil’ Stache Bro” t-shirt.

Adams ended up scoring 11 points and pulled down 7 rebounds in 24 minutes of action in the Thunder’s 118-94 Game 5 victory, giving the squad from OKC a stranglehold on the Western Conference Finals with a 3-1 lead.
Meanwhile, another Thunder fan who has been a fixture in the stands for years — and for good reason — used a message on his bulbous belly to express concern for Adams over the groin shots he’s received from Draymond Green during the series.

Protect Adams’ kiwis, indeed. It’s funny because Kiwi is a term often used for a New Zealander. And kiwis would be a fitting term for, well, you know.
