Heat’s Jimmy Butler is still the coffee king even on vacation after epic NBA Finals run
The season may have ultimately ended in disappointment for Jimmy Butler, as his Miami Heat fell to the newly-crowned NBA champs, the Los Angeles Lakers in six games in the NBA Finals. This, however, has not prevented the 31-year-old from continuing to build on his recently-established coffee empire.
Butler made headlines while inside the bubble for being the entrepreneurial mind behind the highly-successful Big Face Coffee brand — a makeshift espresso shop that Butler ran out of his own hotel room inside the Disney World Campus. Now that he’s officially on vacation, it appears that Butler is continually perfecting his craft.
The 6-foot-7 swingman recently posted this image on his Instagram account:
While that absolutely looks like a delectable cup (or two) of black coffee, the view is undeniably much more impressive. Jimmy Butler is clearly enjoying his vacation — and rightfully so. The All-Star left it all on the court for his team, and while they ultimately lost to the heavily-favored Lakers, Butler and the Heat were able to prove that they are a force to be reckoned with.
Inside the bubble, Butler established himself as one of the best players in the game today. Then again, at 31, he is no spring chicken. He still has a fair amount of high-level basketball years ahead of him, but once he finally decides to hang it up, then he definitely has a bright future in the highly-lucrative world of commercial coffee. He’s already laid out the groundwork — from inside the bubble while leading his team to the Finals — so with some help from the right people, he could be looking at a great business venture here.
