Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler seems to be having a good time while the NBA remains in lockdown mode. The Texas native was having a very productive season before the league’s unfortunate suspension, having helped turn Miami’s fortunes around alongside a cast of exciting youngsters.

Now, with basketball at a standstill where the NBA is concerned, Butler says he’s only been drinking wine and working out.

Jimmy’s living the life 🍷

Butler was speaking to Portland Trail Blazers veteran Carmelo Anthony via IG Live when he divulged his current vices.

Exercise is pretty great when you’re trying to keep fit and healthy and, while wine has its benefits, alcohol is known to weaken the immune system. Hopefully, the combination of the two will keep Jimmy in good condition amid the current pandemic. Given his reputation, though, he’s probably doing a lot more exercising than drinking.
