Since the Jimmy Butler trade drama ended after he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, fans have been in for a treat. He has been with the Sixers for only seven games, but he already has two game-winning shots by pulling the same move from beyond the arc; that lethal 'Left to Right' step back looks to be Jimmy's 'Go-To' clutch winning move.
He lifted the Sixers over the Hornets last week and on Sunday against the Nets he drained a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds remaining. In that game alone, Butler finished with 34 points and 12 rebounds.
The four-time All-Star can opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent at the end of the season, but after the win over the Brooklyn Nets, he told reporters that he could see himself in Philly beyond this season.
“We’ll worry about that when the time comes,” Butler said. “But I really do like it here, I can tell you that. I don’t know what the future holds. This is a helluva locker room, helluva staff. I can see this being home.”
We're sure loving seeing Butler in his element in Philly.
