At 21, Adebayo is the youngest of the group. He showed his age after the season finale when he needed help from a team official to adjust the collar on his dress shirt so he looked proper for Wade’s farewell party later that night. That’s not to say Adebayo is unready for growth. He played in all 82 games, becoming the first Heat player to do so since Norris Cole in 2013-14. Other than stationary work, he has taken a recovery period since the season ended before returning home for workouts in his home state of North Carolina. There are also plans to train with Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. Both share the same agent, Alex Saratsis. The timing and extensiveness of the sessions will depend on how long Milwaukee remains in the playoffs. “You’ve got to grow up someday,” Adebayo said. “You can’t run from it. The time is now for us, as in right now.”
“I remember our first playoff series we lost to Chicago in the last game, Game 6, they beat us by 50 (actually 54),” Antetokounmpo said. “It was something insane, but where we were and where we are now, it’s been an unbelievable journey. I think the organization has done a great job just pushing us towards the right direction and we’re just going to keep enjoying the moment.” “We’re going to try to stay in the moment and as Eric (Bledsoe) said, ‘Enjoy it’ and hopefully we can get better each day and achieve our goals we’ve set all season.”

“What Brooklyn has done without lottery picks has exposed teams like the Knicks, Lakers, Suns and Kings, who have consistently been in the lottery but failed to make the playoffs,” former Nets executive Bobby Marks said. “If I’m an owner, I’m asking, ‘Why can’t we replicate what the Nets are doing?’” “The definition of sport is to compete,” one executive for an Eastern Conference team texted. “Thus, Brooklyn’s approach is the ONLY way to approach a rebuild. The 76ers are a historical franchise that was gutted for future picks. Some may argue the approach was creative or out of the box thinking. However, the actual pick selections were not accurate when it comes to talent evaluation bypassing players such as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kristaps Porzingis.”
