Heat Center Bam Adebayo to Face Kobayashi in Cheeseburger-Eating Contest

Some NBA players are getting closer to game shape with the season fast approaching, but Bam Adebayo seems to be doing the opposite.

The Miami Heat center is set to take part in a celebrity cheeseburger-eating contest Wednesday in Pinecrest, Florida, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel.

Adebayo and the other competitors will try to eat six BurgerFi Cheeseburgers in a five-minute period. Famed competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi—six-time Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest winner—will take on 18 burgers in the same time frame.

BurgerFi will donate $100 for every cheeseburger eaten—up to $5,000—to Feeding South Florida, a domestic hunger-relief organization.
