Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins is not at the same level as Bam Adebayo who is No. 4

While Bam Adebayo looked very bad in the series losing matchup against the Atlanta Hawks last season, he is a truly talented player. He fills up the box score every night through shooting, rebounding, passing, and his incredible defense.

Adebayo can truly defend all five positions on the court and has already been named to two All-Defensive teams in his four-year career. This is a tremendous achievement and what is scary for the rest of the league, he is only going to get better.

While I was very critical of Sabonis for not having range on his shot, Adebayo has gradually been extending his range but is still within the 3-point line. The biggest difference here is that Adebayo has been a key piece on a team that made the Finals, in just his third year.

He has shown that he will win you a game off his own hand at either end of the court. This is where Adebayo is going to have the upper hand on most power forwards in the league at the moment, his tremendous two-way play.
