The Miami Heat enter this season with very high hopes. As they should though, as they have one of their best total rosters since the Big 3 Era.

With Kyle Lowry now manning the point guard role, they have a three-level scorer who is also a two-way guy and can more than get it done from a playmaker’s perspective. He’s just the icing though.

They still have their solid starting core.

That’s the dynamic trio that have been at the heart of everthing the Miami Heat have been able to do in the last few seasons.

You have the leader, Jimmy Butler. He’s the do-everything type of guy.

Becoming the best version of himself, as a playmaker, since arriving in South Florida, if this was the Justice League, he’d be Batman. The unquestioned leader, gothic in his approach, daunting, mysterious, unwilling to say too much unless provoked in a certain number of ways (we have seen all of those, so yea, we know he will talk but stoic is his nature), that’s Jimmy.

He also has the utility belt-type game to match though. If you need him to be your best scorer, playmaker, or defender on any given night, he’s capable, comfortable, and willing to be that.
