Jimmy Butler just finished an NBA season where he showed everybody his durability, toughness, and drive to always give his best. The Miami Heat star shocked the world with his performances at the bubble, killing any doubt people had about him, his commitment and leadership. The Heat took the Los Angeles Lakers to six games before LeBron James and Anthony Davis finished business a couple of weeks ago to kill the Heat’s dream.
Before that, though, Jimmy was already showing his durability, even off the court. Back in 2016, Butler, alongside DeMar DeRozan, DeMarcus Cousins and DeAndre Jordan went to a brothel in Brazil as soon as they landed in the South American country. The players reportedly stayed there for about five hours, spent a lot of money and had all the fun they were looking for in that place. A famous Brazilian site wrote a whole article about it, detailing all the details of their visit.
One of the most interesting facts is that Jimmy Butler had a great night that night, impressing the girl who was with him at the moment.
The hegemony of American basketball may have given players the necessary peace of mind to party before the competition began. Soon after they set foot in Rio, part of the team was in a terme in Copacabana, in the early hours of last Thursday, 4. The result? An account of R$ 16,000 and girls admired by what they saw off the court.
Pivots DeAndre Jordan and DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins, wingers DeMar DeRozan and Jimmy Butler, and two other U.S. saddle stars arrived at the club around midnight with some team members and security guards. They drank a lot and didn’t leave the girls who work in the house unmarked.
“They went to the rooms always in pairs with two or three girls,” says a source who was present at the party. One of them, according to the same source, was astonished by Jimmy’s, say, disposition and asked for the rest of the week off.
The stars, however, would have complained about the place. “They still stayed five hours,” says another person who saw the players at the service. At the establishment, the visit of NBA stars is a subject forbidden to the press, but a video and photos were made on the sly.
They even took pictures of some of the players in attendance.
Well, Jimmy didn’t waste time in Rio and went to that as soon as he landed in Brazil. The player made a huge impression on this girl and she probably remembers that moment four years ago. Butler went through a lot in his career since that year but now he’s found stability with the Heat, the perfect team for him.
