Despite the camouflage, the height difference was hard to miss when Steven Adams met John Key.
Standing at 2.13m tall, the NBA star and his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates towered over the Prime Minister at a meeting this afternoon.
In pictures posted on Facebook, Key holds up one of the basketballer's singlets with autographs from the Kiwi and his teammates Nick Collison and Andre Roberson.
In other shots, the pair hongi and Adams tips his camouflage cap to the camera.
Adams, 23, is back in New Zealand during the NBA off-season to conduct camps with Kiwi kids around the country to show them that basketball can provide both purpose and a pathway.
