Despite the fact that his major statistical categories plummeted after becoming a Sixer, Jimmy Butler feels comfortable in the new surroundings.
Speaking about the current situation, the 29-year-old player said, per ESPN: “When you put five really good basketball players out there, the job is easy because the ball is going to move…Guys are going to shoot when open, pass to the open guy. Basketball is just that easy. With this group of guys, it is really easy.”
Speaking about what it feels like to play with the Sixers’ old-timers – Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid – Butler said, per The Athletic: “Ben [Simmons] sees the game steps ahead, and Joel [Embiid] is a monster inside. So I’m envisioning what we can be.”
In the first four games with the Sixers, Butler averaged 18.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists, while shooting at 55.3 percent from the floor.
