Three days ago, the NBA handed out awards for their players' efforts in the world of social media. Ten awards were given. Although he was nominated in one category, Thunder rookie Steven Adams did not walk away a winner.

Frankly, we're not sure why. Adams may be the only athlete in the world to post a selfie during a dental procedure, as he did on Monday afternoon.

Adams must go to a very casual dentist. Very few will let you breathe or move your tongue, let alone snap a selfie.

Give this man an award.
