    The Heat fell in love with Bam Adebayo for two reasons: his future and his past

The third wheel of the Big 3, Chris Bosh, was also lost due to an unfortunate blood clot condition which could cost him his life if he were to lace them up again. While these unfortunate events have spoiled the Heat’s recent title contending ways, the 2016-2017 showed that there could be some hope despite the loss of personnel. The Heat started out the season terribly, going 11-30 in their first 41 games. While things were looking very bleak in the southeast, the season quickly turned
