If you ask Jimmy Butler, the Miami Heat will be hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy at the end of this season.
With a 10-3 start so far, the star forward tells The Athletic, “The ceiling is a championship. And I don’t care what nobody has to say.”
Butler claims the team is working at that goal every day, adding, “If we figure this thing out, we stay together, we get our defense on track, we get our offense on track, and we become top five in both categories, we right there.”
And with young up and coming stars like Kendrick Nunn, Duncan Robinson, Bam Adebayo, and Tyler Herro, this team really could be built for the long haul.
Who would you place your money on to win the NBA title this season?
