Bam Adebayo played close to the basket the one year he spent with the University of Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team. He did not attempt a single shot from 3-point range.
However, in his workouts leading up to tonight’s NBA draft, Bam is shocking people with his ability to shoot the ball from long range. In a drill for the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday, he made 13 of 25 3-pointers!
This shows Adebayo’s willingness to sacrifice for the team. Even though he had the ability to shoot from outside, he obeyed the coaches and stayed near the basket, a strategy that the coaching staff believed gave the team the best chance to win. What a team player!
Are you a good team player in your church? What sacrifices are you willing to make for the benefit of the church?
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”—Philippians 2:3-4.
