? 2019 Summer League MVP ? S/O to @bam1of1 aka “BIRTHDAY BAM for torching the courts this summer with an average of……….. 28pts – 13rebs – 4blks per game all while putting on a show for our Miami Pro crowds. After watching the work he’s put in this summer, he’s primed to have a hell of a season with @miamiheat this year! Heat fans getting ready!? #MiamiProLeague #MVP #BamAdebayo #BirthdayBAM #BringYaGameNotYaName #WeDoThisForTheCITY #ThisIsMIAMIPRO???
Last season, Adebayo averaged 8.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game. While those are not eye-popping numbers, the University of Kentucky product will likely get ample opportunities to best his career-highs.
With the departure of big man Hassan Whiteside via trade earlier this offseason, Adebayo figures to be a major factor in the Heat’s frontcourt.
If he can get anywhere close to his Summer League averages, there’s little doubt that the Heat will be a force in the Eastern Conference this season.
