"Quick Little Monkeys": Oklahoma City Thunder Player Steven Adams Apologizes For Comments About Golden State's Steph Curry & Klay Thompson (Video)

Video After The Jump

The Oklahoma City Thunder pulled off a huge win over the Golden State Warriors in game one of the NBA's Western Conference Finals on Monday, May 16.

ESPN's Chris Broussard interviewed OKC center Steven Adams on the court immediately after the game and asked him how difficult it was trying to keep up with Warriors' guards Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry.

"I don't envy (our) guards, mate. They have quick little monkeys, those guys," Adams said.

The New Zealand native later realized what he said might be taken as offensive by some and issued an apology.

“It was just a poor choice of words, mate,” Adams told USA TODAY Sports. “I wasn’t thinking straight. I didn’t know it was going to upset anyone, but I’m truly sorry. It was just a poor choice of words. I was just trying to express how difficult it was chasing those guys around.”

Adams blamed his faux pas on his dialect.

“It’s just different, mate,” he said. “Different words, different expressions, and stuff like that. But they obviously can be taken differently, depending on which country you’re in. I’m assimilating, mate, still trying to figure out the boundaries. But I definitely overstepped them tonight.”

What do y'all think?

Monkey's are quick. So i'm sure it was more about speed than race. But you know how you American's can get lol.
