Bam Adebayo is not fond of the Dwight Howard comparisons. One could even go as far to say Adebayo absolutely hates when he’s mentioned in the same breath as the Atlanta Hawks center.
But there’s no denying the fact he looks A LOT like Dwight Howard.
Just don’t say that to his face.
The good people over at KSTV put together a funny package from the preseason player interviews that includes several of Adebayo’s teammates talking about how much he reminds them of Howard. It ends with an unhappy Adebayo denying any similarities, other than having the same body type.
When I got a chance to speak with Adebayo, I told him I was too afraid to ask him about it, after being encouraged by others to bring it up.
He pretended to laugh while I feared for my life.
But really, don’t mention it to him unless you’re ready to piss yourself.
