Miami Heat big man Bam Adebayo has been having an impressive season so far. He has been showing the signs of progression that the franchise desperately needed from him after trading Hassan Whiteside. Now, he has added another massive highlight play to his season highlight reel.
While taking on the Philadelphia 76ers in a major Eastern Conference showdown, Adebayo taught his former teammate a lesson. Josh Richardson was moved in the Jimmy Butler trade this offseason and he took the brunt of a big-time dunk from Adebayo.
Take a look at the poster dunk from Adebayo on Richardson for yourself:

When everything was said and done, the Heat ended up getting the win over the 76ers by a final score of 117-116. It was a massive win for Miami, who has been one of the biggest surprises in the East. If Adebayo continues playing like this, the Heat are going to continue being one of the toughest teams in the league.
