Chris Bosh had nothing but good words to say about the young stars of the Miami Heat, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro.

The legend of the Heat praised the two young stars for their work ethic, their unselfish playing style and their lack of fear.

“I just love the way Bam plays the floor game. He’s patient, he lets the game come to him. It’s always kind of a weird thing to say, but he does. He’s very unselfish.

He gets his teammates involved, looking for second and third situations. But I think as we saw in Game 6 [of the Eastern Conference finals], he has a lot of offensive capability as well, and that’s always there.

He can definitely, definitely continue to improve. In my opinion, I think if he just stays aggressive and continues to work on that leadership quality of just bringing it, bringing that intensity and bringing that moxie, that fervor that the team needs and knowing that he belongs, it’ll work. He’ll be fine. But he just continues to improve and really, really pump up his game.

This dude (Herro) has no fear. He has no fear — good shot, bad shot. He’s not afraid of that moment. That’s what I love about him, and he has been doing that all season. You can tell he’s one of those guys that he feels that he belongs there.

He got snubbed for the All-Rookie First-Team. He’s one of those guys that plays with a chip on his shoulder. He plays like he has something to prove. Sometimes you need that. That can be a lost art sometimes,” Bosh said in an interview with The Miami Herald.

Adebayo has been averaging 17.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.1 steals this postseason. Meanwhile, Herro has been averaging 16.4 points on 43.8 percent shooting, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists in the playoffs.
