NEW YORK -- You don't have to look far at the Jordan Brand Classic to find a player, coach or NBA scout praising incoming Kentucky big man Bam Adebayo.

"Bam, he's just a monster," 6-foot-10 Florida State signee Jonathan Isaac told SNY.tv.

"These days, guys that have a high motor and a high energy level are very valuable," DeMatha coach Mike Jones, an assistant with the East team, said on The 4 Quarters Podcast.. "That's kind of been a separator and Bam is one of the guys that I've met in years with one of the highest motors. He plays so hard all the time and with great energy. With the physical attributes that he has [and] with that desire, he's going to be one heck of a player."
