Steven Adams reacted in typically hilarious fashion when asked about losing his Stache Bro Enis Kanter to the Knicks.

Kanter was traded to the New York Knicks over the weekend as part of a deal to bring All-Star power forward Carmelo Anthony to Oklahoma City Thunder.

"He didn't die," Adams said to laughs from the media.

"Everyone's been coming to me like he passed away. Yeah I'll be sad but he just moved down the road."

Kanter revealed at the Knicks media day that he dined with Adams and Thunder star Russell Westbrook on Sunday NZT after the Thunder agreed to trade him to New York.

The native of Turkey joked that his former teammates told him to be careful in New York, and to watch out for the media.
