Needless to say, Miami Heat fans like the way that future Hall Of Famer Chris Bosh thinks.
In a recent Instagram live, Bosh answered a question asking who his favorite current NBA player was, saying it was Miami’s Bam Adebayo.
“Who is my favorite current NBA player?” Bosh said to himself. “I’m definitely gonna say my guy Bam Adebayo because’s he okay. No, he’s pretty good. He’s like a 6’9 Magic Johnson.”
Adebayo’s third season in the league has by far been his best, averaging 16.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game, earning a trip to the All-Star game alongside teammate Jimmy Butler. In fact, Adebayo took home the 2020 NBA Skills Challenge trophy, defeating Indiana’s Domantas Sabonis.
At 22 years-old, Adebayo has proved to be one of the most dominant young players in the modern NBA era. At 6-foot-9, 255 pounds, Bam’s ability to facilitate the ball and make a constant impact for the Heat definitely gives some flashbacks of Lakers legend Magic Johnson and his way to distribute the basketball.
Johnson displayed excellence in his third season in the league, recording 18.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 9.5 assists, and 2.7 steals, establishing himself as one of the better players the game will ever see.
Although Chris Bosh didn’t get to play with Adebayo, who was drafted in 2017, his constant improvement and dominance on the court made Bosh a big-fan of the Heat’s future franchise player.
