Bam Adebayo proud of Miami Heat despite NBA final loss to LA Lakers


Bam Adebayo (centre) was key to Miami Heat’s run to the NBA finals, where they lost to LA Lakers…at the weekend.

Los Angeles Lakers at the weekend defeated Miami Heat 106 to 93 in game six of the finals to win the 2020 NBA title, but Bam Adebayo is not ashamed of his team’s performance.

In the 2019-20 NBA season concluding game in Orlando, Florida, LeBron James lifted the Larry O’Brien Trophy and was voted the NBA Finals MVP. The four-time NBA Champion has now won four championships with three-different franchises – Miami Heat (2012, 2013), Cleveland Cavaliers (2016), and LA Lakers (2020).

James led the team with 28 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists, with Anthony Davis and Rajon Rondo scoring 19 points each. The Lakers’ 28-point lead at halftime was the second biggest in NBA Finals history. The Lakers won the best-of-seven series 4-2.

Winning their 17th title, the LA Lakers have tied the Boston Celtics for the most championships in NBA history.

Adebayo led the Heat with 25 points and 10 rebounds while Jimmy Butler finished the contest with 12 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists. Goran Dragic returned to the court and recorded five points, five rebounds, and two assists.
Speaking after the game, a proud Adebayo praised his team for their efforts, adding, “At the end of the day, I wouldn’t want to be in the locker room with no other guys.

“I feel like when we got in the bubble, everyone was complaining about not wanting to be here, nobody wants to be here, but my teammates stayed solid. We stayed solid and we wanted to be here. We wanted to compete. That’s one of the biggest things I would say.”
