The Heat’s Jimmy Butler, known as the league’s “tough guy”, is not only tough, his character is also vicious, full of a defiant energy. The previous “fight” with Jokic was a big deal, and later in the game “dislike” the team’s head coach caused controversy, many fans once listed him as the team’s number one “prick The team’s top “prick” was once listed by many fans.
A while ago, there were many rumors about Butler’s trade, mainly because of his “irrational” behavior. This season’s regular season, the Heat’s record is high in the East first, Butler although the data performance is not bad, averaging 21.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.7 steals, but three-point shooting rate of only 23%, a career low.

So, what exactly is Butler’s strength? In fact, the playoffs are the real stage to test a “tough guy” like Butler. Butler’s performance in the regular season has been moderate, once the playoffs, he played very tough, whether it is to take the Timberwolves to the playoffs, or to join the Heat in the first year to lead the team to the finals, are enough to show Butler’s real strength.

Although previously suffering from a lot of controversy, Butler still showed the team’s core temperament when the playoffs really came. In the G2 game against the Eagles, Butler played 39 minutes, shooting 15 of 25, cutting 45 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 0 turnovers, 0 fouls, such a “superb” performance almost let the opponent completely “suffocated”.
It’s no exaggeration to say that Butler has always been an underrated player in the league. He looks so inconspicuous at times, but actually contributes a lot to a team, which is why the Heat are willing to extend him early.
In the summer of 2019, Butler signed a 4-year, $142 million contract, and then renewed his contract with the Heat early in the summer of 2021 for 3 years and $146 million, so that the 33-year-old Butler is actually holding a big 4-year, $184 million contract, totaling more than RMB 1.1 billion. The contract takes effect next season and expires in the summer of 2026.
In addition to making a name for himself and his price, Butler is also very happy off the court. Although he is a “prick” on the court, but his private life is very low-key, even many fans do not know that he has an innocent girlfriend to accompany. The “mysterious” girlfriend of Butler has given birth to a daughter for him, and the two have a very sweet relationship. I believe many fans did not expect that “tough guy” Butler has such a spontaneous side.
