September 28, Beijing time, is a special day for Butler. He led the Heat to return to the Finals for the first time in six years, and this is the first time in his career. Do you know what a coincidence? On September 28, 2019, Butler held a media meeting. Even if it's a fortune teller, this man will lead the Heat to the finals in a year!
This Heat is definitely a grassroots team. There is no player with the top five picks in the team. The highest ranked player is Iguodala with the 9th pick. Leonard is the 11th overall pick, Hiero and Olynik are the 13th overall pick, Adebayor is the 14th overall pick, and Butler is the 30th overall pick. This is such a team, and the Lakers will play the finals. Regardless of the result, Butler and the Heat have won respect!
You don’t know how many winds and rains this man has gone through to get to this day. When Butler was very young, his father abandoned the family, leaving him and his mother alone. When Butler was 13 years old, his mother kicked him out of the house. A biological mother actually yelled at her son: "I don't like your looks, you get out of here!" From then on, Butler could only be sent under the fence and was left in distress.
Many NBA stars are single-parent families, but their mothers do a few jobs to support their children. For example, Iverson, James, Durant, Harden... Butler is even more miserable, and his mother doesn't want himself. He stayed at a friend's house at night and went to the stadium to practice hard during the day. Later, a couple adopted him. Butler unwilling to succumb to fate, he confidently said: "My idol is McGrady, I can enter the NBA like him!"
In the 2011 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls selected Jimmy Butler from Marquette University with the 30th pick in their hands. Born in 1989, he is 22 years old, definitely considered an older rookie. The scout report gave Butler this evaluation: the advantage is that the technology is comprehensive and there are no shortcomings. But the disadvantage is that there is no specialty. In the draft year, lottery picks may not be able to play, let alone the end of the first round? No one is optimistic about Butler at all!
在2011年选秀大会上，芝加哥公牛队选择了马奎特大学（Marquette University）的吉米·巴特勒（Jimmy Butler），手中有30顺位。他生于1989年，现年22岁，绝对算是年纪较大的菜鸟。侦察员报告对Butler进行了评估：优点是技术全面，没有缺点。但是缺点是没有专业。在选秀年，彩票选秀权可能无法发挥，更不用说第一轮结束了吗？没有人对巴特勒感到乐观！
Rookie season, Butler played 42 games off the bench, averaging only 2.6 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. The performance on the court was mediocre, and another thing off the court attracted everyone's attention: Butler and the legend of the Bulls-Michael Jordan look so alike! The ridicule about Jordan's illegitimate son also began. The ordinary-looking and mediocre Butler has encountered difficulties in all aspects of his life.
However, he always has a "stroke" in his body, which is unique to many superstars. In the 2013 playoffs, the Bulls played against the Heat. Butler played three consecutive games for 48 minutes, making him an iron man. Throughout the series, he averaged 41 minutes per game, scoring 13.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists. The NBA began to remember this name.
In the 2013-14 season, the Bulls core Rose was reimbursed for injury. Management and coach Thibodeau began to notice the desperate Saburo on the bench. Butler not only stabilized his starting lineup, his average points per game have also increased year by year. In terms of playing style and technical characteristics, Butler and Rose are very different. Rose is elegant and agile, Butler is masculine and rude.
Ross is talented and can fly into the sky and escape. Butler started from defense, and he worked hard step by step, and finally developed offensive skills such as ball breakthrough, back-to-back, and face-to-frame singles. Butler's defense is beyond your impression. Only two active players in the NBA have more career steals than fouls. One is Leonard and the other is Butler. You know, Xiaoka has a wingspan of 2.23 meters, while Butler has only 2.02 meters.
Butler said: "If I am a player with no talent, then take hard work as my talent!" He was also recognized by the league and became the most improved player in the NBA in the 2014-15 season. But since Rose was injured, the Bulls have never made it through the second round of the playoffs. On June 23, 2017, Butler was traded to the Timberwolves. Here, he encountered the biggest public opinion crisis of his career!
With Butler's blessing, the Timberwolves have reached the playoffs again after 14 years. However, his persistent character became a time bomb again. The team record is good, but the contradiction between Butler and Towns, Wiggins is getting deeper and deeper. The boss can only make a choice, Butler is traded by the Timberwolves. Look at his current record, much better than those two top picks.
Let's use the most famous quote as the end of this article: Who is the most talented player? It's Downs! Who is the player most favored by God? It's Wiggins! Who is the hardest player to play? it's me!
