Jimmy Butler has been a clear leader of the Heat in this year’s playoffs. He is averaging 33.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 38.4 minutes per game during the postseason.
The 33-year-old small froward helped Miami eliminated number the one seed Bucks and is close to taking his team to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat lead the Knicks 3-1.
Four-time NBA champion Draymond Green shared his take on ‘Playoff Jimmy,’ saying that one of his superpowers is making sure the Heat get a decent look every possession.

“I think one of the most underrated things in the playoffs that Jimmy Butler does is Jimmy Butler is going to make sure they get at least a decent look every possession,” Green said on Tuesday’s episode of his podcast. “If he has to hold the ball for 22 seconds and get it to someone with two seconds left on the shot clock, he’s going to make sure that they get a decent look. I think that’s one of Jimmy’s superpowers when it comes. Everybody’s always talking about ‘Playoff Jimmy’ and this and that. That is a huge part of it.”
