“They are sitting on the bench.” Bam Adebayo criticized the practice of providing rest
Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo spoke about the practice of load-sharing among NBA players.
“Most of the guys just sit on the bench – this is the so-called load sharing. This saddens me. And because? Because moms and dads with their children come especially to see these players.

And in fact. Last season, Adebayo spent a total of 2,598 minutes on the court – these are the best indicators of the player’s career. Bam also became the leader in the number of kilometers traveled – 400.7.
