Being 6’10” and 250 pounds, Endrice “Bam” Adebayo uses his size and athleticism to fly over the competition. He has tremendous dunking ability and a toughness that cannot be stopped in the paint. He is much quicker than other centers and can beat them up the court on a fast-break. Whether it’s lobs, put-backs or fast-breaks, Adebayo knows how to put on a show. Coming out of high school he was named North Carolina Mr. Basketball and North Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year. He was a dominant rim-protector in his lone season at Kentucky, averaging 1.5 blocks per game and was named Second-Team All-SEC and SEC All-Freshman Team.
