The Miami Heat have just ended the Sixers’ season after a 99-90 win in Game 6 of their second-round series. The Heat are the first team to advance to the Conference Finals and they now await the winners of the Bucks-Celtics series.

Jimmy Butler was the star of the show for Miami yet again as he led his team with a mind-blowing 30-point performance in the closeout game. The Heat star shared an endearing moment with Sixers big man Joel Embiid right after the final buzzer and Butler has now revealed exactly what he told his buddy (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

“I love him. I’m proud of him,” Butler said. “Yes yes yes, I still wish I was on this team. I definitely love the Miami Heat though. I’m glad that I’m here, but I got so much respect and love for Joel Embiid.”

Butler and Embiid formed quite a bond during their time together with the Sixers. As a matter of fact, Butler just dropped a truth bomb here about wanting to still be on Embiid’s team right now. Jimmy is not one to keep his true feelings to himself and he wasn’t shy about speaking his mind here. Nevertheless, the six-time All-Star made it abundantly clear that he’s more than happy to be with the Heat right now.

Here’s a look at the moment Butler and Embiid shared right after the game was decided:

Butler and the Heat now progress to the next round while the Sixers, unfortunately, face what should be a very interesting offseason ahead.
