The Miami Heat have far exceeded expectations this season. The team went from rebuilding to a legitimate title contender in a very short time.
One of the main reasons for the team’s recent success has been the inspired play of Bam Adebayo. Although the 23-year-old fell short of winning the NBA’s Most Improved Player this year, he’s solely focused on winning a different trophy.
Bam Adebayo, on Heat coming up short in some of the NBA award balloting, "At the end of the day, if we win a trophy, I don't care about MIP. We get a ring."

The Heat selected Adebayo with the 14th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and seem to have struck gold. Adebayo has quickly become one of the best players in the league at his position and a vital piece to Miami’s championship puzzle.
