Jimmy Butler’s $100,000 demand from Kyle Lowry after Heat beat Bucks

Heat, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry

The buddy cop movie that is Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry has officially begun. The Miami Heat scored a huge first win on Thursday night as they manhandled the Milwaukee Bucks, 137-95.

Lowry didn’t impress in his much-awaited Heat debut, finishing with five points on 1-of-8 shooting from the field. He did tally six assists and committed only one turnover in 24 minutes. To be fair, he didn’t have to play much as it was a blowout contest all throughout.

With win no. 1 already in the books for the Heat, Butler is focused on more important things. For instance, his daughter’s birthday tomorrow. And the All-Star forward doesn’t want any cheap gifts from Lowry (via Hoop Central).

“I hope that motherf***** knows my daughter’s birthday is tomorrow. And she needs a really expensive gift. $100,000 Kyle, I ain’t f****** around.”

Ah, nothing like asking for an expensive gift by using profanities.

Clearly, Butler and Lowry are enjoying their time together in South Beach. They have built a tight relationship over the years and they finally get to play together.

While Lowry struggled a bit, Butler delivered the goods. He finished with 21 points on top of four rebounds and six assists. Tyler Herro was the top-scorer for the Heat with 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting, plus he had six boards and five dimes.

Lowry can bounce back when they take on the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. In the meantime, he has to find a $100,000 gift.
