MiamiHerald / Dwyane Wade knew all about Bam Adebayo’s potential the first time he saw him play as a pro. Wade’s first two games playing alongside the rookie have only reinforced that notion.
“Bam can jump out the gym. Find a way to throw it real high and make him want to go get it,” Wade said. “The kid is good and as he continues to learn the game and has more time on the floor, it’s going to be real, real, real special.”
Wade’s alley-oop to Adebayo accounted for two of the rookie’s points against Toronto, on a night Adebayo had 11 points, five rebounds, three assists and led the Heat in plus/minus at plus seven in 25 minutes.
Erik Spoelstra did not play Hassan Whiteside and Adebayo together at all in Tuesday’s 115-112 loss in Toronto. Wade sees considerable potential with that pairing.
