For the first time, Steven Adams shares the story behind his meteoric rise from the streets of Rotorua to his emerging stardom in the NBA.

Adams overcame the odds to become a top prospect in the 2013 NBA draft. From there he went on to secure a four-year contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder - making him New Zealand's highest-paid sportsperson ever - and forge a reputation for his intense, physical style of basketball.

In this intimate account of his life story so far, the seven-foot centre reflects on his humble upbringing, the impact of his father's death when he was just 13, the multiple challenges and setbacks he has faced, early career-defining moments, and what basketball means to him.

Told with warmth, humour and humility, My Life, My Fight is a gripping account from one of New Zealand's most admired sporting stars.

Steven Adams: My Life, My Fight

Sports biographies – especially New Zealand ones – have been few and far between in recent years so it is great to see basketball star Steven Adams’ story come to life. He’s twenty-fi ve but has an inspiring story of grit and determination, rising to the ranks of NBA star when he was drafted in 2013. Steven comes from a family with seventeen siblings and gifted with height and size which has contributed to their family’s sporting prowess. His sister is sporting star Val Adams and two brothers Sid Junior and Warren are stellar basketball players too. Steven talks frankly about the impact of his father’s death when Steven was just thirteen, his humble upbringing and challenges he has faced along the way. His heart and humour come through his writing and there are coloured photos included as well. He’s very clear in his contentment and vision for future endeavours. My Life, My Fight is perfect for sporting fans and for Father’s Day coming up on 2nd September.
