Bam Adebayo wins Skills Challenge at All-Star Weekend

Bam takes home the hardware!

NBA: All Star-Saturday Night Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Heat All-Star and former Kentucky Wildcats star Bam Adebayo is having a breakout season so far for the Heat. Tonight, he upped that again by winning the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, beating out Domantas Sabonis in the finals.

Bam also beat Toronto Raptors All-Star Pascal Siakam and Brooklyn Nets star Spencer Dinwiddie en route to his Skills Challenge victory.

Bam has had a dominant season with the ‘Big Three’ in Miami along with Tyler Herro and Jimmy Butler. Bam is currently averaging 16 points per game to go along with 10 boards per game. That was obviously good enough to land Bam his first NBA All-Star appearance this year along with teammate Jimmy Butler.

Bam is the first of the trio of him, Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox to make the All-Star game, although the other two are not far behind.

Congrats to Bam on an already successful All-Star weekend.
