Onyeka Okongwu compares his game to Bam Adebayo’s


On Friday afternoon Andy Bunker and Randy McMichael were joined by Atlanta Hawks 1st round pick Onyeka Okongwu. Okongwu was First-team All Pac-12 in his only year at The University of South California (USC) and a two-time winner of the California Mr. Basketball award in addition to being the 6th overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft.

“Definitely Bam Adebayo. Me and him are great defenders, versatile defenders. He is a great playmaker and he is able to get everyone the ball….In due time I feel like me and him will have similar type careers,” Okongwu answered when asked by Randy who he would compare his game to that currently plays in the NBA.

This past season per game Adebayo averaged 15.9 points, 10.2 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks.
