In the NBA, there is a player can be called the most confusing player in the league, this person is the Heat’s Jimmy Butler, everyone knows that he plays hard, known as a tough guy, every year he can be selected as an All-Star, the big contract is also signed, but does not give a feeling of superstar, many fans just do not know where Butler is strong in the end, he is why so many of the Why did he get so many titles? And why did he become the top pillar of a team? In fact, Butler’s name of tough guy is true to his name, not mixed with a little water.
The NBA is a competitive sports league, but in the end it’s just business. Players in a team do not have a relationship between brothers, but a relationship between colleagues, so there is often very little tearing up between players, and there will not be the kind of so-called I see you play hard to go up to teach you two sentences of people, everyone lives for everyone, not for others. But Butler is not that kind of player, he will instead pass on his motivation to other players.
One of the most representative things Butler did in his career is undoubtedly the conflict between him and the Timberwolves twin stars Towns and Venice, remember he once said that, even if not the person in question, onlookers see it deeply. “Am I too hard on him? Yes, that’s the way I am. I’m not the most talented guy on the team, who’s the most talented player? It’s Towns. Who is the most favored by God, it’s Wiggins. Who is the guy who plays the hardest? It’s me! I play hard and put my body on the court every day, either in practice or in games! That’s my passion! That’s how I make you aware of me!”
