Floyd Mayweather Trash-Talks Bam Adebayo During Heat-Blazers Game: “You Know You Don’t Shoot Jumpers!”

Floyd Mayweather Trash-Talks Bam Adebayo During Heat-Blazers Game: “You Know You Don’t Shoot Jumpers!”

The Miami Heat faced off against the Portland Trail Blazers in a recent fixture. At the end of the final buzzer, the Heat won a hard-fought game with a score of 104-92 in their favor. As usual, Bam Adebayo played a crucial role in the team's victory.

He finished the game with 20 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists to his name in 32 minutes of action. While the Heat center had a decent outing, it seems like there was one person who didn't like his performance.

It was boxing legend Floyd 'Money' Mayweather who was present courtside in the Heat-Blazers match. Mayweather took the job of heckling Heat players pretty seriously. During one such conversation, Floyd passed a hysterical remark on Bam Adebayo's jump shooting ability.

"Hey Bam, you know you don't jumpers."

This is not the first time NBA fans have seen Floyd on the sidelines. He is an avid NBA fan and attends games from time to time. The Heat-Blazers game was one such fixture and the flamboyant boxer made sure to make it a memorable outing with his hilarious comments.

In fact, the 44-year-old boxer has also given his thoughts on the basketball GOAT debate. He believes that Michael Jordan is the GOAT, but in a 1-on-1 situation, LeBron James will be the winner. Now, that is a hot take.

Anyway, speaking of the point that Mayweather pointed out while heckling Adebayo, he was not wrong by any means. Since Bam plays the center position, he spends most of his time in the paint and finishing around the basket.

It is evident by the fact that even with the NBA All-Star break arriving soon, this season Bam has attempted just one 3-point shot and he missed that. Considering the era in which he is playing, it wouldn't be a bad idea to add a decent jump shot to his arsenal.

But even without Bam having that weapon in his arsenal, the Heat are doing great. They currently have a record of 29-17 and hold the 3rd spot in the Eastern Conference and have established themselves as one of the prime contenders to come out of the East in the playoffs.
