Steven Adams is invaluable to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He's also a reminder: Big Men in the NBA are still vital. The imposing 7-foot center from New Zealand is as critical to the Thunder's championship aspirations as Russell Westbrook and Paul George. Adams is also helping change the recent narrative that NBA centers are an endangered species, something that _ based on spending and drafting this summer _ is evidently not the case.
