Bam Adebayo: I Will Win Defensive Player Of The Year This Year 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Jul 24, 2022 5:34 pm

Bam Adebayo feels like he should already have two Defensive Player of the Year awards in his trophy case. Adebayo promised campers at a Miami Heat clinic that he will win the award this upcoming season.


“I should have won it the last two years,” Adebayo told the campers. “And I will win it this year.”


Adebayo has finished in the top-5 of Defensive Player of the Year voting the last three seasons. The Heat big man has also been named to the All-Defensive Second Team the last three seasons.

Who did he lose to the last two years? I'm just curious, because I want to know who he will lose to this year.

Lol even Robert Williams completed sonned him in the ECF on the defensive end, I cant see how he manages to be impactful enough to be DPOY.

Jrue Holiday is still waiting to get his DPOY back from Smart.

Maybe if you play another 15 - 20 games you would have a shot at winning the award..
