Jimmy Butler recently went live on Instagram with USWNT captain Megan Rapinoe and her partner Sue Bird. When asked about the Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, Jimmy Butler responded by saying, "I haven’t seen this MJ doc. I haven't seen it. Everybody around my house puts it on every TV. And I'm just like, you know what? Everybody is watching it, so I'm gonna go outside and work on my true calling, and I just kick a soccer ball around. ... I've been working on my game."

Butler was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 2011 and stayed with the franchise for six years before leaving for Minnesota Timberwolves. Jimmy Butler moved to Miami Heat before the start of the 2019-20 season after playing for the 76ers for a single season. The Jimmy Butler quarantine has been on since the NBA was suspended earlier this year. Interestingly, amid the Jimmy Butler quarantine, the Miami Heat star sent hoops to all of his Heat teammates so they could indulge in practice sessions amid the lockdown.
