BIOGRAPHY

Jimmy Butler currently plays for the Miami Heat. 

Born on September 14, 1989 in Houston, Texas, he is listed at 6' 7" and weighs 230 lbs.

Butler went to high school at Tomball (TX). A bit of an unknown as a prospect, compared to top tier guys with a lot of hype, Butler committed to play for the Marquette Golden Eagles.

After a solid college career, though not the sort that blew minds, his draft prospect wasn’t exactly considered high. However, due to this, the Chicago Bulls made out like bandits when they used their No. 30 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by selecting Butler.

Known for his defensive, work ethic, and ability to will teams to victory, Jimmy Butler has earned numerous individual awards, including appearances in All-Star games. 

Off the court, fans can often see Butler being promoted as a fan of Taylor Swift. In fact, in 2020, Swift herself commented positively on Butler’s fandom of her. Butler is also allegedly a fan of country music. 

During his NBA career he also played 6 seasons with the Chicago Bulls, 2 seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves and 1 season with the Philadelphia 76ers. 

He joined the Miami Heat in 2019.
