Jimmy Butler is one of the NBA's toughest players. After his father abandoned his family as an infant and his mother kicked him out of the house when he was 13, he received a Division I scholarship at Marquette and became a first-round NBA Draft pick.

Butler, who is 33 years old, is now playing for another chance to reach the NBA Finals. His Miami Heat improbably reached the Eastern Conference Finals as an eighth seed, which was only done once before (the New York Knicks reached the NBA Finals in 1999).

“We had enough,” Butler said. “Next year, we will have enough. And we're going to be right back in this same situation and we're going to get it done.”
