Goran Dragic had nothing but good words to say about his teammate in the Miami Heat, Jimmy Butler.
Dragic said Butler was the one that led the Heat to the 2020 NBA Finals, calling him ‘a tremendous player and unbelievable teammate’.
“He is a tremendous player, unbelievable teammate. I think it’s the culture that Miami has. Coach Spo and the coaches, they want you to talk. They want you to engage in a conversation.
Sometimes it’s not going to be pretty, it’s not going to be nice. That is good to move forward as a team. And Jimmy, that’s how Jimmy is. He will tell you straight to your face if you are not doing your job.
Everybody in this team understands. Maybe in his previous teams players were a little sensitive and maybe because of that they had problems with Jimmy.
Nobody in our team had this problem. He is a great leader on the court and a competitive guy. With him, basically we made the Finals,” Dragic told Shams Charania of The Athetic.
