Jimmy Butler

First, I want to go on record that I love Jimmy Butler. Guy has the winning attitude, the talent, and the little bit of swagger you need to be memorable. This is Jimmy Butler’s first year with the Miami Heat and it’s already evident that the Heat is likely a playoff team. I could tell by looking at the roster that that would be the case. Already the Heat beat the Bucks WITHOUT him. With him, they can play with anyone.

Jimmy Butler Stats

Jimmy Butler didn’t get his reputation for nothing, since 2015, Jimmy Butler has averaged 20 PPG, usually 4 APG and at least 5 RPG. Also, while it doesn’t show up on the stats all the time, Jimmy Buckets is also a great defender. This kind of production is what the Heat are looking for to try to make a run in the playoffs this year. He played for the Chicago Bulls for 6 years, before playing for the Wolves and the 76ers, which Joel Embiid wanted him to stay last year.

Jimmy Butler brings a winning attitude to the Heat now that Dwyane Wade is retired. Wade wasn’t very productive last year in terms of stats because of his inevitable decline, however, his presence was strong and good for the Heat. Butler now brings a strong presence and the production that the Heat need to succeed. I’m a big Jimmy Butler fan, even more so when he took on the TimberWolves starters with the bench and won. You know, when he basically called Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins soft? God that’s what you look for in a player if you have soft players on your team. There’s a lot of Mamba Mentality in Jimmy Butler, and with me being a Kobe fan, there’s no reason why I shouldn’t like him. We” see how far he takes the Miami Heat in the playoffs this year.
