Heat’s Jimmy Butler receives disturbance complaint after going into full practice while in quarantine
Even while in quarantine in his hotel suite, Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler was putting in some work. Apparently, Butler was being too loud that he received a disturbance complaint.
As reported by Chris Haynes, a “loud thumping” was going on in one of the rooms at the hotel the Heat were staying in. The security guard got a call and checked upon it. The security guard eventually found the room, knocked on the door, and saw Butler, dribbling a ball and drenched in sweat.

For Jimmy Butler fans, this is not unusual behavior for the Miami star. After all, Butler’s known to be one of the hardest workers in the NBA. He’s one of the elite stars of today because of this.
Besides, the Heat are considered the dark horse to win the title this season thanks in large part to Butler. Their record stands at 31-24 for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Early in the season, they were considered a mid-tier team who has a chance to be a title contender over the next few years.
However, Heat president Pat Riley made some decisive roster transactions in February. They acquired veteran forward Jae Crowder, Solomon Hill, and three-time champ Andre Iguodala in a three-team trade. This move triggered some analysts to raise their title stock. The Los Angeles Lakers, LA Clippers, and the Milwaukee Bucks may be the top favorites. But the Heat have a real shot at upsetting these top teams.
