Bam Adebayo has bloomed into a fabulous player in the last few seasons. However, it wasn’t until the last season that he truly became star caliber player. For his efforts, Bam was awarded a hefty deal with by the Miami Heat.
He can earn nearly $200 million over the next five seasons after signing this humongous contract. Adebayo has earned each and every penny of that contract and he didn’t have a luxurious life while growing up.
Bam recently shared a post on his Twitter account showing his the trailer in which he used to live. He also gave a befitting caption to the post.
“Acre Station…76 Church Lane… My Imperfect/Perfect Home! The Green Trailer That Made Me Who I Am. The Sleepless Nights, The Nights I Slept Great, Through The Pain And Struggle. As Well As Through All The Great Times We Had. THANK YOU #BounceBack #WeNotDoneYet.”
Last season Adebayo was a crucial piece in the Heat’s fairy tale run to the NBA Finals. Although the Heat lost in the finals, it is just the beginning of good things for the team and the all-star big man.
Bam averaged a solid 15.9 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game in the regular season. Moreover, he was a defensive beast averaging more than 1 steals and blocks per game as well. Moving forward, the 23-year-old will serve as the perfect companion to Miami Heat’s leader Jimmy Butler.
After signing Bam to this enormous contract, both the fans and franchise will have high expectation for him. In fact, many sections of the crowd still believe if he was 100% healthy in the NBA Finals, the Heat could have caused problems for the Lakers.
That is in the past, but this season the Heat are seen as one of the top contenders for the NBA title. The 2020 Eastern Conference champions have opened a championship window for them after signing Butler.
Moreover, even if they fail to make it all the way to the finals this season, they still have the cap space to sign a star. Taking all things into consideration, where do you put the Miami Heat for this season? Was last season a fluke or was it the fruit of their hard work?
