In the middle of a rather eventful period for the Miami Heat, chasing Kevin Durant behind the scenes you’d imagine and while things sort of snail along to the outside eyes, that wonderful time of year has fully settled upon the NBA world. It’s prognostication and implication season.

This is the time of year where every increment of every minute nuance of every single detail surrounding the NBA, a particular team, or player is scrutinized and analyzed for what it could actually mean. Or, it simply allows fans to say what will, should, or might happen moving forward about the subject of said piece of content.

And as fate would have it, this whole presentation is to introduce a piece to the Heat collection. The nature of the tidbit surrounds the fact that one NBA player, in particular, seems to be abroad and working on his game.

Well, if you follow the league a bit and especially the Miami Heat, it wasn’t that hard to tell which guy this is. That would be one, Bam Adebayo.

The Miami Heat are hard at work trying to improve their team. This is all while one of their feature players, Bam Adebayo, is hard at work improving his jumper.

It’s actually a pretty interesting scenario playing out here. Though Adebayo appears to be working on a few aspects of his shooting game across the pond, from several looks at the midrange game to a few go-to-type shots or moves with the shot, there is one aspect of his workouts that really leave intrigue.

Fine-tuning his range shooting at the end of the above video, Adebayo would take his game to another level, totally, by adding the ability to knock that shot down to his arsenal. To be completely frank, he would do wonders for his game and the rest of his teammates by even just attempting a few per game.

Never being anything higher than a .2 attempts from range guy across his five years in the league, he’s never hit a percentage high enough to register, with most data recognizing “.1” and above as a “registerable” percentage.

It becomes even more confounding when you think about the fact that for the10th of a three per game that he’s actually taken per game across his career, he hasn’t hit a 10th of a percent of them.

That’s why merely taking the shot helps. It would open up more space for himself and his teammates to attack the basket, while the raw production of it all speaks for itself.

Now, that’s just if he takes the looks. If he can hit them with a high level of regularity, then that exponentially increases these same effects.

That would be huge to guys like Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, Tyler Herro, whoever might play alongside them all next year, and especially Bam Adebayo himself. With his other skills and abilities, it would really take his game to a new level.
