With the entirety of the NBA world talking about the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers matchup, Jimmy Butler too, had his own thoughts on the 2020 NBA Finals.


Jimmy Butler is implying that it has become a staple in today’s NBA to face off against the 3x Champion if you want to win it all.

Understandably so, as LeBron James is set to make his 10th Finals appearance, notching more Finals appearances than 27 other franchises.

Jimmy Butler does give credit to the players surrounding James on the Lakers roster, saying the Heat need to watch out for them too.
