In the most literal sense, the charge Marcus Smart took on Bam Adebayo was a collision of two of the top defenders in the NBA. In our chat, Bam explains how he’s looking way past any individual comparisons in the Eastern finals, ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/3327402/2022/0…11:03 AM
Joe Vardon @joevardon
Miami. Boston. This would be the series for Bam Adebayo to air his personal grievances, about Marcus Smart and DPOY voting and all-defense voting. And in a way, he’s taking the opportunity to be heard, ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/3327402/2022/0…9:34 AM

More on this storyline

Bobby Marks: Robert Williams has a $223,215 bonus as part of his rookie extension. However, because Williams is still in the fourth year of his rookie scale contract, the bonus is not earned. The bonus is now deemed likely and his cap hit for 2022-23 is adjusted to $10,937,502. -via Twitter @BobbyMarks42 / May 20, 2022
