It was the block heard around the world. Bam Bam Adebayo blocked Jayson Tatum’s game tying dunk sealing a win in Game 1 for the Heat vs Celtics. Jayson Tatum was getting ready to do a powerful tomahawk dunk when Bam Bam Adebayo blocked him, stopping him right in his tracks.
It was reminiscent of Lebron James blocking Andre Iguodala in the 2016 finals. Take a look.
The Miami Heat are now 3 games away from reaching the finals for the first time since Lebron James left. Bam Adebayo blocking Jayson Tatum might be the moment that sets the tone for the entire series.
Bam Adebayo “sonned” Jayson Tatum. It will probably be tough for Jayson Tatum to look Bam Adebayo in the eyes after that.
Pray for Jayson Tatum through this tough time. That block was straight up disrespectful.
