Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat have been a constant in news headlines over the last few days. No, it is not because of some sensational win or anything. Instead, the reason for it is due to a pretty heated altercation between Jimmy Butler, head coach Erik Spoelstra, and veteran Udonis Haslem.
The incident took place when the Heat faced off against the Golden State Warriors. During the game, the Heat were unable to stop the Warriors from scoring at will. As a result, the Warriors comfortably won the game.
It is believed that due to that beef with coach Spo and Haslem, Jimmy Butler might even leave Miami. While those are still rumors, any NBA fan will easily believe it after the recent incident.
Although rumors suggest that Butler could leave the Heat, it doesn't seem to be the case after hearing what the 32-year-old has to say about the incident.
"I think we got comfortable a little bit expecting that we’re going to win night in and night out. Everything’s not going to be all good. Everything’s not going to be all bad. We understand that. I just think at the end of the day, we’ve got to be in it together, which we are. And we’re going to continue to be that way — win, loss."
He further explained, "Things happen. We understand that, as well. And we move on from it, like we have. And we got one, so let’s get back to a stack of wins.”
After hearing Butler's take on the alleged beef between him and coach Spo, it doesn't seem like he is worried about it. After all, the Miami Heat is known to be one of the most closely-knit groups in the entire league.
Even if they disagree with something, it's unlikely that it will have a long-lasting effect on everyone. Moreover, with the playoffs right around the corner, the franchise needs to focus on their upcoming fixtures rather than a small internal conflict.
