Bam is potentially one of the players that may be affected by the NBA’s fragmented season as far as winning this award goes. He was still one of the finalists for the award that ultimately went to Pelicans’ wing, Brandon Ingram. Without the break in the NBA season, his growth for this upcoming season would be on full display, giving him a great shot at winning. Despite this however, expect to see Bam compete for this award yet again. As a young, large wing in a system that is designed to maximize his skillset, Bam will likely make yet another jump this upcoming season, taking on an even bigger role in the Miami offense as Jimmy Butler may see a bit of decline.
