Miami Heat superstar Jimmy Butler knows the Milwaukee Bucks will focus their tactics on stopping him in the playoff series.

Butler doesn’t care about what happened in the 2020 playoffs, and is locked in ahead of the clash with the Bucks.

“I guarantee that they still got a scout for me, whether I played or not. I’m ready for anything. You leave the past in the past, all the wins, all the losses, all the mishaps, all the great fortunes.

It’s a different time of the year right now. You’re supposed to be playing your best basketball, be healthy. And first one to 16 wins, so we’ve got start with the first four,” Butler said of the Bucks, via Ira Winderman of Sun Sentinel.

Butler and the Heat will open the playoffs series vs Milwaukee on Saturday afternoon.
