Jimmy Buckets lived up to his nickname in the first half of Thursday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns.
In fact, Jimmy Butler scored 30 points on 9-of-10 shooting for his Miami Heat before intermission.
That included this absurd And-1 on a rebound and put back. The play itself was sexy. However, it’s the fact that Butler lost his shoe that makes this even more brilliant.
Jimmy’s down. Jimmy scores.
All “Seinfeld” puns aside, Butler is lucky he didn’t suffer a serious injury. Losing your shoe and falling to the hardwood like that could get scary.
The new Heat All-Star entered Thursday’s action averaging 15.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 3.8 steals per game after missing the start of the campaign due to paternity leave.
South Beach is going to love this dude.
