In the most literal sense, the charge Marcus Smart took on Bam Adebayo was a collision of two of the top defenders in the NBA. In our chat, Bam explains how he’s looking way past any individual comparisons in the Eastern finals,@The Athletic:theathletic.com/3327402/2022/0… – 11:03 AM:

Joe Vardon: @joevardon:
Miami. Boston. This would be the series for Bam Adebayo to air his personal grievances, about Marcus Smart and DPOY voting and all-defense voting. And in a way, he’s taking the opportunity to be heard,@The Athletic:theathletic.com/3327402/2022/0… – 9:34 AM:

More on this storyline:

The Hustle Award, which debuted in 2016-17, rewards players that do the little things that do not often show up in the traditional box score but have been tracked since the NBA debuted its Hustle Stats during the 2016 postseason. Hustle stats include deflections, loose balls recovered, charges drawn, screen assists, contested shots and box-outs. -via NBA.com / May 23, 2022:

Shams Charania: 2021-22 NBA All-Defensive teams: First team: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Mikal Bridges, Rudy Gobert, Jaren Jackson Jr., Marcus Smart Second team: Bam Adebayo, Draymond Green, Jrue Holiday, Matisse Thybulle, Robert Williams III -via Twitter @ShamsCharania: / May 20, 2022:

Bobby Marks: Robert Williams has a $ 223,215 bonus as part of his rookie extension. However, because Williams is still in the fourth year of his rookie scale contract, the bonus is not earned. The bonus is now deemed likely and his cap hit for 2022-23 is adjusted to $ 10,937,502. -via: Twitter @ BobbyMarks42: / May 20, 2022:
