Video: Heat’s Bam Adebayo shuts down challenger at Miami Pro League
A random baller was talking smack to Miami Heat big man Bam Adebayo at the Miami Pro League – and Bam shut him up by letting his play do the talking.
As seen in the clip below, Adebayo first took the man one on one and scored over him after a series of crossovers. Then, he proceeded to block him on the other end. Of course, Adebayo, who recently just turned 22, made sure to let the dude know that heckling him was a major mistake.

Lesson learned. Never trash talk a professional hooper, especially if he plays in the best league in the world.
Adebayo may seem like the average NBA player; he isn’t a star by no means, yet. But even the league’s worst bench warmers can make the average person (like most of us) look like absolute scrubs on the court.
The third year big man is already getting ready for the upcoming NBA season by getting some run at the Miami Pro. In fact, he has been showing up at the local pro league a lot this summer.
Adebayo is the favorite to be Miami’s starting center this season. The Heat traded then starting big man Hassan Whiteside to the Portland Trail Blazers this summer. With Whiteside no longer in his way, the former Kentucky standout is in prime position to have a breakout campaign for the Heat in 2019-20.
Adebayo averaged 8.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.2 assists while shooting 57.6 percent from the field last season. In 24 starts, his numbers jumped to 11.8 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 59.5 percent field goal shooting.
