Adebayo won’t be the only player representing Miami in this season’s All-Star Game. Jimmy Butler was also pegged as an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve.
For Adebayo, this year’s appearance will mark the first in his young career. While many expected the 22-year-old big man to take a leap this season, few predicted such a momentous one.
So far this season, Adebayo is averaging 16.0 points, 10.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.
The exciting thing for Heat fans is that Adebayo still has much more room to grow. As he continues to flourish in a leadership role with the team, chances are good his production will only continue to climb as well.
While this season’s All-Star Game will be Adebayo’s first, it almost certainly will not be his last.
