Heat’s Jimmy Butler hilariously impersonates Rick Ross during 2020 team gala
Butler and the rest of the Heat had a blast during the team’s Gala on Monday at the AmericanAirlines Arena, as Jimmy Buckets busted out his best Rick Ross impression.
Rick Ross, William Leonard Roberts III in real life, is a Florida-native and a big-time Heat fan.
The 44-year-old rapper is best known for his deep grunts on his tracks, which he gladly showcased to Butler. The five-time All-Star did his best to imitate the iconic grunt and actually managed to pull it off — much to the delight of his teammates.
See the hilarious moment below, posted by Heat center Meyers Leonard.

Jimmy Butler, meanwhile, is having a fantastic run in his first season with the Heat. The 6-foot-7 swingman is averaging 20.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, and 1.7 steals in 54 games.
It also appears that Butler is doing just fine after exiting the Heat’s last game over the Washington Wizards due to a bothersome toe.
