Bam Adebayo won’t leave his room as Heat play in Washington due to fears as African-American
- Updated: January 7, 2021
On Wednesday, a batch of President Donald Trump’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol to protest the recent presidential election.
The Heat fly to Washington on Friday and play there Saturday. Bam Adebayo says he's not leaving his room (other than the game). "Being an African-American man in this world, you can tell there's two Americas that we're living in," he said.

Adebayo, 23, was a vocal part of the Heat’s response to the racial unrest that took place in the summer of 2020.
The NBA made it a priority to address racism and police brutality in the bubble in Orlando, Fla. last season. Still, the worries and anxiety trouble numerous Black NBA players.
In the aftermath of the chaos that took place in Washington on Wednesday, the NBA world expressed its frustration and the double standards that take place in the country.
Heat icon Dwyane Wade went on a massive rant as Trump supporters flooded the U.S. Capitol building. The franchise’s all-time leader in points scored also commented on how police treat white and Black people differently.
