Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra was asked about Jimmy Butler’s time with the Heat so far.  He joked that the star, who joined the Heat in the offseason as a free agent, “he’s been a total a-hole.”

Butler has that reputation, especially from his time with the Timberwolves, but he’s been great through 23 games.  He’s averaging just over 21 points and providing veteran leadership.
