Bam Adebayo was, for lack of a better a term, a BEAST in his third game in the Orlando summer league Monday night. We use that word too often, but there’s no better way to describe how he played.
The former Wildcat and No. 14 overall draft pick led his Miami Heat with 29 points and 11 rebounds; however, it wasn’t enough to keep his team from dropping yet another game as the Pacers won a tight one, 86-83.
But for Bam, the game was an enormous win for making a statement in the early stages of his young NBA career. He showed versatility we never saw at Kentucky (at one point even bringing the ball up the court) and connected on 13 of his 17 free throw attempts in the game.
Catch a glimpse of some of his action:

I caught most of the game and I swear the announcers talked about him the entire time. “Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam” all night. He’s off to a great start with the Heat and we couldn’t be happier for him.
