The Miami Heat star left his mum surprised after he took her to the newly acquired home on Sunday, Dec 6 for a tour.

“I was so nervous, because I never really give her a gift like that,” he said, via ESPN.
“So it kind of gave me like a feel like when I first stepped on the Finals court. I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know anything at the moment. It was like one of those ‘aw’ moments where you just sit there for a minute. And she enjoyed it.”

Bam Adebayo is fresh off his breakout season in the NBA, where he helped lead the Heat to the NBA Finals. The 23-year-old averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds last year while earning his first All-Star nod, which earned him a massive five-year contract extension that could end up being worth $200 million.

His new life is a far cry from how he and his mom lived for years. They lived in a single-wide trailer in North Carolina while struggling to make ends meet. Bam Adebayo has shared photos of that trailer, and even carries a photo of it around with him constantly.
