The Miami Heat won this past summer when they went out and landed Jimmy Butler. The enigmatic wing has come in and catapulted this team to contention.

The Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler has never been that shy of a guy. While he has oftentimes been labeled or put into the box of being quiet (which isn’t quite the truth either), he isn’t shy at all.

For example, Jimmy Butler couldn’t be as assertive as he is if he were shy. This means that he wouldn’t try to or simply be as successful as exerting his will over others, be that in the throws of competition or via encouraging a teammate to be better.

If Jimmy were shy, he wouldn’t also be as revealing and forthcoming as he is at times. In example of one of those times, Jimmy Butler recently did a social media live stream with Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird and United States women’s national team/OL Reign captain Megan Rapinoe. It was apart of an online live stream series titled A Touch More.

In this makeshift Q&A, Butler goes on to reveal many things. Specifically, there are three things here of significance.

Two of them are answered in the following clip, but one is inherent and has been visually present since he left Minnesota, especially here in Miami. Let’s check out the clip.

So for starters and as the Miami Heat star says, he only scored one point in that now-infamous practice in Minnesota. It was said that he constantly scored or look to score all of the buckets while leading the second unit guys to a scrimmage beat down of the first unit.

Secondly and in case you hadn’t for some reason been able to figure it out by now, Butler has absolutely nothing for Karl-Anthony Towns. It wasn’t only the slight pause and chuckle when asked who he takes on his “banana boat”, but also the answer in itself.

He played with one twice as long as the other, but still took the one that he only played a year with. It speaks volumes towards his actual sentiments.

The last lie that has debunked about his time in Minnesota is that he is a bad teammate. We all know that isn’t true by now, based on his time in both Philly and currently in Miami.

If you ask the guys that played with him then and the guys that play with him now, they may say that he is anal about how he goes about doing things, but that’s only in the best interest of the team or team success. In my book, wanting to win so bad that it hurts will never make you a bad teammate, just a winning player that wants it that badly.

Next. Which is the best version of Jimmy Butler?. dark

As if we needed more evidence of this nature to confirm it, it’s still evidence to that point nevertheless. Thank god he’s in Miami now though, for our sakes, his sake, and perhaps even the sakes of Maple Jordan and KAT.
