Oklahoma City Thunder player, Steven Adams, has bought a pet tiger with his new $100 million dollar contract.
Adams told the media “I’ve always wanted a tiger as a pet and am so happy to have ‘Tana’ in my life. That’s right, my tiger’s name is Tana.
Tana is expected to move in with Adams in a few weeks once he has had his place “tiger-proofed”. The name Tana pays homage to rugby legend Tana Umaga, who Adams is fond of.
With Tana costing nearly $80,000, Adams has promised this is the only impulsive purchase he will make, “Outside of my new Samsung Edge and Tana, I will make no further impulsive purchases with the bountiful new contract bestowed upon me”
Adams joins Mike Tyson as another notable celebrity to purchase a Tiger as a pet.
