Adorable Pacers fan stunts in his new sunglasses


Jimmy Butler recently stopped by the Phoenix Military Academy near the United Center in Chicago and donated $10,000 to the school and then offered to double the amount if a student hit a one-handed three-pointer.

Butler is considered to be a surefire candidate for a max contract when he becomes a restricted free agent this summer, so he probably does not mind chipping in an extra $10,000 for a school full of adoring fans.
