"This Isn't Syria, Mate": Kiwi Star's Perfect Response To Whinging NBA Stars
Steven Adams has subtly reminded the whinging NBA players of the fortunate position they're in.
With the NBA relocating to the virus-free bubble of Walt Disney World in Orlando ahead of the season restart next week, some of the league's biggest stars have already began complaining about the 'conditions'.
The likes of Joel Embiid and JR Smith joined the growing list of disgruntled stars when they shared their thoughts of the food to social media.

The NBA's multi-million-dollar earners have also likened the bubble to the infamous Fyre Festival.
Oklahoma City center Adams isn't having a bar of it, though.
The Thunder big man has hit back at his critical NBA colleagues, claiming the conditions are nothing in comparison to war-torn Syria.

With much of the United States' population (and the majority of the world) impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, it's hard not to agree with the 27-year-old New Zealander on this one.
On top of that, it's understood the Walt Disney bubble is fitted with movie theatres, swimming pools and even barbershops for the players.
