Well, the Miami he they know their type. They always get players with a chip on their shoulder. And the number one guy analyst Jimmy Butler, Tomball, Texas That's where I was born in top hospitals. Jimmy Butler. If you talk about him, you always have to talk about the fourth quarter. He is a winner. He loves to take the tough shots and make the tough shots. He's a hard nosed player. No one wants to win more than him. Now. One of the best stories of the season has also been Kendrick Nunn, 24 years old, a rookie and giving you straight up 16 points per game. So what's the line? He's the rookie end of that. Those have been big surprise. Nobody. I bet nobody expected that kind of production parents. Probably unbelievable. I mean, so how is the addition of Jimmy Buckets affected this team? It's been everything. You know, the way he left Minnesota and then even leaving Philly. A lot of people sort of quote unquote called him problematic type of teammate. So I thought it was really interesting when I was reading this geek you interview in which Tyler Hero said this of Jimmy Butler. What he said was the fact that people say he's a bad teammate or that he can't win. I don't know where that's coming from. Jimmy is one of the best leaders and teammates that I've ever had. Obviously, it's my first year in the MBA, but the way that he goes about things and is able to lead a group of guys is incredible to me. That just tell you Jimmy Butler is, and I really thought it was funny because the first day of heat practice, what time did he come in practice? Was that like 10? He came in at 3 30 a. Oh, 3 30 Nobody does that unless name being business. And I think he's really excited to be in my No one has ever questioned his work ethic or his Will Day job is getting it done. So who else have you been impressed by on the heat, Of course. Have to start with my fellow Nigerian Bamut, a bio like talking this team. If you look at their roster there, so many surprises. Bamut. AbioCor Even though he was cut from Team USA, I thought I would make the team. He had a lot of momentum around his name, capable of giving you triple doubles. So far this season, he was Eastern Conference player of the Week. His name has been into stats. Closer. LeBron James, the shooters. Tyler hero, the highly touted rookie out of Kentucky and Duck and Duncan Robinson undrafted and then out of Michigan. So these shooters have really helped balance and keep the floor space because they're kind of an undersized team. But they make you pay from deep getting so much from so many unexpected sources. So when you look at this team, do you see them? Do you consider them a serious contender? Absolutely. They're the type of hard nosed team, and you talk about organizations that do it right. The Miami Heat, Pat Riley, Erik Spoelstra. They know what they're doing. They know how to build a culture. I would not want to play this team in the playoffs. You saw like, most notably, they brought out that zone against Really, they're willing to do whatever it takes to win. You don't want those type of problems when it comes the playoffs, you pansy fans love to hear that right tonight. All right.
