Bam Adebayo: “There’s no ‘I’ in winning a National Title.”

Bam Adebayo is larger than life force in the post, but the game of basketball isn’t all about Bam.

Standing 6’10” tall with a muscular 260-pound frame, Bam has been described as a beast, a monster and more.

“I’ve heard ‘I was struck by lightning as a child.’  I don’t know why somebody would say that but…” Bam failed to find the words to properly describe the strange tale from his childhood in an interview with UK Athletics.

However, Bam did have a fantastic selection of words when discussing his goals for the upcoming season.  An unavoidable presence in the post, when he is in the game, it will not be all about Bam, it’s all about the team.  His goals are the team’s goals — to win a title.

“You gotta be a teammate to win a National Title.  There’s no ‘I’ in winning a National Title.  You can contribute, but there’s no ‘I.'”

Even though there are four I’s in “winning National Title,” I would not be willing to correct him to his face.
