VIDEO: Heat star Jimmy Butler forces Tyler Herro, Bam Adebayo to do a cheerleader pyramid during covershoot
Miami Heat wings Jimmy Butler and rookie Tyler Herro are on the cover of SLAM Magazine this week along with third-year center Bam Adebayo. Unknown to many, however, the shoot wasn’t easy for Herro and Adebayo.
Apparently, Butler hilariously tried to will his teammates to form a human pyramid in behind-the-scenes video footage of the shoot, via SLAM.

Jimmy Butler joined the Heat in the offseason in a four-team sign-and-trade, pairing him with rookie guard Tyler Herro — who Miami selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft last June.
Herro is off to a fast start for the Heat, with the first-year swingman out of Kentucky averaging 14.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game coming off the bench.
Butler, on the other hand, has played up his part in joining the South Beach franchise, averaging 18.8 points and 6.3 assists a contest while notably bringing a tough demeanor for the Heat in and out of practice.
However, in this instance, Butler is fine with placing the rookie Herro at the top of the pyramid for the cameras.
