All Blacks halfback TJ Perenara is enjoying some time-off with esteemed company, snapping a photo with NBA stars Russell Westbrook and Kiwi Steven Adams.

Perenara has just wrapped up a busy season, starring in the All Blacks 63-point demolition of Italy on the weekend.

The 26-year-old dropped by the Oklahoma City Thunder training facility to check out a team practice session, and gift Westbrook and Adams a couple of All Black jerseys.

Sporting Perenara's number nine and number 21, the basketball pair seemed pretty chuffed with the new additions to their wardrobes.

Perenara also spoke to the team about the All Blacks' winning culture and the meaning of the haka.

On Instagram, the Hurricanes star noted what a great experience it was, hanging with the basketball superstars.

"Honour and a privilege to be able to speak to the @okcthunder today about the @allblacks and #Haka," Perenara said.

"Completely blown away by your hospitality and genuine interest in our culture."
