In an interview with Andrew Sharp of Sports Illustrated, Miami Heat superstar Jimmy Butler talked about his mentality.

“I am not a God-given talent. I ain’t the best shooter. I am not the best ballhandler. Not the most athletic. Not the fastest. But, I battle. I fight. I am tough as sh* and I don’t back down. There goes my talent for you. I ain’t scared of nobody,” Butler said.

Butler is averaging 20.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game on the season for Miami and has become the leader of the team.

The Heat are fourth in the East with a 37-22 record.
