Jimmy Butler has a wonderful and inspiring story as to how he made it from rags to riches. The NBA All-Star is having a splendid season with the Miami Heat. He is averaging 21.8 points. 6.2 and 6.2 assists per game. The Miami Heat are currently first seed in the East with a record of 35-20.
The Heat made a few nice off-season moves. One of them saw Kyle Lowry end his nine-season run with the Toronto Raptors to join his old friend, Jimmy Butler at Miami. Everyone knows how goofy a duo involving Kyle can be, DeMar DeRozan may have stories to share. Jimmy has taken this move as an opportunity to show love while roasting his old dear friend.
Jimmy Butler would rather talk about Kyle Guy over Kyle Lowry
After a 21 point win against the Washington Wizards, the Heat are sitting comfortably on the top of the Eastern Conference. The team has been on a roll with amazing performances from a number of players. Kyle Lowry missed a number of games this season including his return game back to Toronto due to personal reasons. However, K-Low has returned to court and is having great games.
During the Press conference, Jimmy Butler was asked a number of questions about Kyle Lowry’s shooting. The 6-time All-Star decided to have some fun and spoke about Kyle guy instead of Lowry. This was not the first time that Jimmy picked on Kyle during an interview.
"Ohhhhhhhhhh, that Kyle"

Jimmy and Kyle are actually best friends
Jimmy Butler may have been seen bullying Lowry a number of times. Be it on the court or even during post-match conferences, these two are always sharing a laugh and a few roasts. The love between the two men is absolutely evident. It is amazing to see them on the court together as well.
Jimmy Butler has mentioned a number of times that Lowry is one of his best friends and the godfather of his daughter. Even though the two of them are competitive even against each other, love is always there. Before Kyle’s move, Jimmy wanted to say that Kyle should play with him in Miami but knew the NBA would have called him out for tampering
He’s one of my absolute best friends,He’s the godfather of my daughter. And it’s just like as competitive as it is, we’re always laughing, we’re always joking around. I would say something else, but then the NBA is going to look at this and be like, ‘Oh my god, he’s tampering.
Jimmy also went on to bully Kyle when the season began. He called Lowry’s presence, ‘Kyle Chaos’. When asked about how it felt to play alongside his best friend, Jimmy said it was nothing but annoying. Lowry has a fast-paced game which forces the entire roster to move quicker and Jimmy just wanted to take a break.
I think he’s always looking to pitch the ball ahead and get guys in the right spots. It’s incredible. It’s a blessing. Sometimes it’s a curse, because you’ve got to be in some really great shape to be out there in what we call the ‘Kyle Chaos.’ It’s real
Another duo involving Kyle Lowry must be a treat for fans. We do know that Raptors fans are secret;y hoping that Deebo and Kyle, the OG duo get back together soon but it’s amazing to see Lowry back on the court, having fun, taking home W’s all with one of his best friends, Jimmy Butler. If Miami wins a championship maybe Jimmy will forgive Lowry for not getting his daughter a gift worth $100K.
