Please Don’t Talk Trash to Bam Adebayo

If you ever find yourself in a position where you are trash talking an actual NBA player despite not being in the NBA yourself, it might be time to reevaluate your priorities.

The poor (yet foolish) gentleman in the clip below learned this lesson the hard way after taking things a bit too far with former Kentucky center Bam Adebayo during a run at the Miami Pro League.

This dude is the future of the Miami Heat, why would anyone in their right mind go after him? He’s a 6-foot-10 athletic alien with feet quicker than a Muhammad Ali jab. Has no one seen the video of Serena Williams absolutely destroying regular dudes at tennis? To this day, one of the most entertaining corners of the Internet is the one filled with kids named Danny who think they can take down professionals at their own craft. Adebayo was just carrying on the tradition and thank goodness someone got it on film.

My question for the trash talker at hand is this: why go for the stepback jumper on Bam? That’s just poor scouting. Adebayo is sending that one back down your throat every single time. Odds are you aren’t getting a clean look off against a locked-in Adebayo anyways, but at least make a pretty pass or something.

I mean, seriously. If Adebayo ever does this in an NBA game then go ahead and give him the max contract. Who in their right mind would willingly come after this man? That’s a level of confidence that is almost too dangerous to overcome.
