◼️ Jimmy Butler is delighted with the Philadelphia 76ers and talks about the importance of his teammates’ confidence in him.
At last, he seems happy. Jimmy Butler is delighted with the Philadelphia 76ers and admitted he could play there for a long time. This is a man who could have coasted out a contract year for a probable playoff team. He chose instead to request a trade, and when he felt he wasn’t fully heard, commandeer an entire franchise until he got his way. Butler has staked his entire career on defiance. It’s what made him a star, and by extension, a Sixer.

Butler’s arrival at the Sixers has made the Philly team still a more serious contender in the Eastern Conference, which is gaining weight after the departure of LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers and leaving the Eastern Conference open for business.
