MiamiHerald / The Heat is by no means asking Bam Adebayo to defend one of the NBA’s greatest shooters of all time.
But Miami’s 6-10, 20-year old rookie center out of the University of Kentucky didn’t back down when he found himself on the perimeter Sunday night guarding Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry.
“It’s competitive nature,” Adebayo said. “I just go out there and play hard no matter who I’m guarding or what I’m doing. I’m just going out there to try and help my team.”
Commendably, Adebayo has often given those humble responses in his first season in the league.
