Who is the strongest wage earner in the league today? The leader nominates Butler. Everyone should have no opinion, right? The US media has listed his influence on various clubs: 1. Leading the Bulls into the playoffs; 2. Helping the Timberwolves return to the playoffs for the first time since 2004; 3. Helping the 76ers and last year's championship battle to grab Seven; 4. Lead the Heat to return to the finals for the first time since 2014.
谁是当今联盟中收入最高的人？领袖提名巴特勒。每个人都应该没有意见，对不对？美国媒体列出了他对各种俱乐部的影响力：1.带领公牛进入季后赛； 2.帮助森林狼队自2004年以来首次重返季后赛； 3.帮助76人队和去年的冠军争夺战夺取七人； 4.带领热火队自2014年以来首次重返决赛。
Even ESPN sighed: "Butler can change a team!" Indeed, which team does not want to have such a hard player? According to reporter Kyle Goon, during the 2019 offseason, the Lakers discussed signing a free agent butler after getting Davis!
It is a pity that the Lakers management was too obsessed with Leonard at the time, and eventually missed J.B. In this regard, Butler said that he had not considered joining the Lakers last summer. When he saw Riley and Spoel, he knew that the Heat was the team he wanted to go to. Maybe this is love at first sight.
It's not just the Lakers who missed J.B. Reporter Jonathan Feigen revealed that the red team also wanted Butler many times. At the beginning, they made an offer to the Timberwolves that included 4 first-round signings. As a result, the Timberwolves finally chose the 76ers in exchange for immediate combat power such as Covington and Saric.
The second time happened after J.B became a free agent. At that time, the red team was ready to trade Capela and Gordon in order to make room to sign Butler. But they did not get the opportunity to meet Butler, who eventually chose to join the Heat.
Heat coach Spoel said when talking about recruiting Butler: "We talked for 20 minutes at the time, and then he suddenly said,'Okay, I agree.' I was stunned because the two sides hadn't even started talking about recruitment. After he joined, he set a goal for us to win in the moment."
In this year's playoffs, Butler averaged 20.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.9 steals per game, and his shooting percentage was 45.7%. He is the key to the Heat. According to the statistics of reporter Jackson Frank, Butler has played 41 minutes of key moments in the playoffs so far, accumulating 39 points, a true shooting percentage of 76.9%, and a net efficiency of +42.5.
It is worth mentioning that the current record of the Heat and the Lakers are both 12 wins and 3 losses. If the Heat win the championship, they will become the second champion team without a player in the top two MVP rankings in the past 40 seasons. The last team to win such a championship was the Spurs in 2014.
