The Miami Heat are a team known for their bond, comradery, and commitment. Jimmy Butler took that to a new level recently by eliminating all excuses.

The Miami Heat are a team that has come to be known as a team of overachievers. While they’ve had their fair share of talented ballplayers, and they still do, they’ve accomplished as much as they have over the years as a franchise mostly on the backs of hard work and sheer determination.

You also have to give some credence to the fact that everything they do, are, and aspire to be is rooted in a collective path that they rarely stray away from. They look for Heat guys, that will follow the Heat way, to eventually immerse themselves fully into the Miami Heat Culture. Our meeting here today though is about where those two phenomenons intercept.

When it comes to being a hard worker and flat out Miami Heat guy, there is no better example than one Jimmy Butler. Prior to this player-team marriage ever being a thing really, but definitely since the day he arrived in South Beach, Jimmy Butler has oozed Heat Culture. He has put his hard hat on every day and demanded the same thing of those around him, a guy after Spo and Riles‘ own hearts.

Well, the legend continues. In these times of suspended professional sports leagues and stay at home orders, Jimmy Butler still isn’t one for excuses. This is so much so the case, that he has practically made it impossible for any of his teammates and coaches to come back from the NBA suspension with an excuse for not taking this time to get better at their craft.

According to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald, Butler had a basketball hoop sent to each of his teammates and coaches. His teammates don’t have an excuse to not be out practicing, at least taking free throws, while his coaches don’t have a reason why they can’t be plotting and figuring out more strategy and gameplan.

And they said that he was a bad teammate. They said that he was only coming to Miami to “party”, “chill”, and/or “retire”. That’s why we don’t listen to them.
