Jimmy Butler gets ready for practice by lip syncing to country music

Monday December 7th, 2015

Butler has previously joked that he feels like he has the chops to make music into a side career, so maybe this video is his first step towards becoming the first NBA/country-and-western star.

The 2015 Most Improved Player winner is doing something right in his gym sessions, as he is shooting 37% from three-point range and averaging 20.5 PPG so far this season.
