Miami Heat will be honouring Bam Adebayo by retiring his number 13 Tokyo Olympics gold medal winning jersey
“A lot of guys don’t get this opportunity, so my goal is just to make sure that I seize this moment and not mess around with it,” Bam had said ahead of the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Bosh, Andre Iguodala, Ray Allen, Gary Payton, Christian Laettner and Jimmy Butler all make the illustrious list of names who have played for the Heat and won Olympic gold. However, the side only retires jerseys for players who won the gold while being a part of the side.
Chris Bosh’s No. 1, Dwyane Wade’s No. 3, Tim Hardaway’s No. 10, Shaquille O’Neal’s No. 32 and Alonzo Mourning’s No. 33 are all retired by the team in a bid to honour the colossal legacies of these names who stamped their authority during their time at the club.
