During the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies’ 119-106 victory over the Bulls, Bradley and Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant became entangled after Morant drove to the basket, leading to a minor altercation.

Before things could really get off the ground, Adams was quick to defend the star of his franchise, doing his best as a security guard as he escorted Bradley out, literally carrying him around like a little boy.

Consider that Bradley is a 6-foot-10, 245-pound NBA center.

Years Jackson Jr. Said he knows all too well the feeling of being picked up by Adams, “You feel like you’re seven years old. You feel a little helpless.”

Morant and Bradley received technical fouls for their role in the fight, while Adams set social media buzzing, marveling at the strength of a player who wouldn’t look out of place on the Grit and Grind Grizzlies.

“Steven Adams literally picked him up… and took him away from Ja Morant,” Stan Van Gundy said on the broadcast.

β€œThere is no stronger man in the NBA than Steven Adams,” added Brian Anderson. “He literally lifted his feet off the ground to get him moving.”
