The Miami Heat needed another gargantuan performance on Friday night and they got it. They got it from their resident superstar… Jimmy G. Buckets.

The Miami Heat are playing with what we call house money. Win or lose, they have proven something to themselves, the league, and anybody else that follows the sport of basketball.

Proving something isn’t, wasn’t, and has never been the goal though. They are here, so they obviously want to win it all.

That goes without saying. As if you do something, you always do it to the best of your ability and with as much effort as you can.

That’s practically the Heat Culture in a nutshell right there. That isn’t the only thing that’s been proven by these NBA Finals though.

The second thing is this. Jimmy Butler has a little His Airness in him.

This comparison has come up before, but no stage or comparative metrics have ever been this clear before. This version of the thought came about via an excerpt from a Bleacher Report piece though.

The thought may surprise you, as it did us. The source is what shocked me though.

The fact may shock you. But, hear me out, it isn’t that far fetched.

Let’s just get into it.
