You can’t question Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler’s work ethic. Usually, that’s a good thing. It’s what makes Butler a great player. But in the NBA’s bubble, it leads to Disney security paying you a visit.
Butler, 30, had security called on him for dribbling a basketball in his hotel room, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes.
Security received a report about a disturbance in the hotel after a guest heard “a lot of bumping going on,” according to Haynes. Security arrived at the culprit’s room, knocked on the door and were greeted by Butler, who was drenched in sweat. Turns out, Butler was getting in some practice time in his hotel room and his neighbors — or, more likely, the people staying directly below Butler — weren’t happy about it.
While the Heat have been excellent this season, the team still faces a tough playoff road if it wants to win a championship. At 41-24, the team sits fourth in the Eastern Conference. The Heat are more than capable of making a run, but getting past the Milwaukee Bucks will be difficult.
Butler making sure he’s in peak condition when the season restarts will be a huge boost. In his first season with the Heat, Butler averaged 20.2 points and 6.6 rebounds.
