The NBA off-season – where NBA fans patiently wait for any hint of news as we slowly creep toward to start of the new season.
The past few days have seen fans of the Sacramento Kings and the Miami Heat debate some seriously good players – which ones are better?
Domantas Sabonis vs Bam Adebayo
This is a star-studded debate. Both players were All-Stars in 2023 and had notable seasons with their teams. The Kings ended a 16-year playoff drought after their first full season with Sabonis, and the Miami Heat had an inspirational run to the NBA finals, marking the second time an eight seed has ever made it.
This isn’t enough for Twitter though, as the debates ran rampant.
Player A is Domantas Sabonis, player B is Bam Adebayo.
Here, a Heat fan listed Player A as Sabonis and B as Adebayo, but left off Sabonis’ assists per game in an attempt to make him look worse.
Here is a look at how each player was rated last season.
It’s safe to say Sabonis had a better year, but you have to give credit to Bam, who was a large reason for the Heat’s post-season success.
Kevin Huerter vs Tyler Herro
While Tyler Herro has been constantly linked to trades out of Miami this off-season, Heat fans have now defended him tooth and nail in a comparison against Kings guard Kevin Huerter.
The debate started when Huerter was ranked one place ahead of Herro in an NBA player rankings list.
Herro averaged higher points, rebounds, and assists than Huerter, but Huerter had higher efficiency stats.
This is a highlight reel from a game in which Tyler Herro and Kevin Huerter matched up against each other.
And Tyler Herro liked the video, sparking more debate online.
Huerter then liked a tweet about the video, saying that he had 27 points and 7 assists that game and won.
The NBA world will continue to do its thing while we wait for the new season, and this time it looks like we will have a new rivalry to look forward to.
