Adam played basketball at Loyola Marymount University and then transferred to the University of Houston before going overseas to play professionally in Japan. Adam attended training camps for the Houston Rockets, the Boston Celtics and the Portland Trail Blazers.
Adam’s father, NBA Hall of Famer and Portland Trail Blazers super star “Clyde the Glide” was also chosen 14th when he was drafted to the NBA by the Blazers in 1983. Clyde has been the commissioner for the Big 3 since March of 2018. The 3 on 3 basketball league was founded by hip hop musician and actor Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz. It is still relatively new, with it’s inaugural season taking place just 5 years ago in 2017.
