Jimmy Butler quotes

Apr 19 2017

It's really simple. When I'm open, I normally shoot the ball. Sometimes when I'm not open, I also shoot the ball. But most of the time, I pass it to the open guy. And when they're making shots, my job's a lot easier. People can't load up on me, and then on top of everything else, these two do a lot of that as well. When they're attacking, they're aggressive, they're getting people involved as well. And getting stops. When we're getting stops, we're pretty tough.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I'm not surprised because everybody's so locked in right now. Everybody's putting in each work, watching film, working on their game. That's where your confidence always comes from.feedback

Apr 17 2017

Be physical. If I foul, I foul. Don't foul too many times. Challenge every shot. Contest everything at the rim. We all know what he does for that team and what he's done this year putting the ball in the basket. I think I can guard anybody. Especially if that's what my team needs me to do. However long it is, however many minutes, I'm out there to do that. This is what playoff basketball is about and you got to be ready.feedback

Apr 16 2017

We were so locked in all week. We knew their stuff, just like they knew ours. But we executed extremely well. We haven't done that all season, but this is the right time to do it.feedback

Apr 14 2017

I look forward to that matchup. Especially what he's done this year for that team. I know that it's going to come at some point in time. I don't know when -- but I'm going to make it tough for him. For anybody that I'm guarding. Not just me, it's going to be a team effort. I'm going to get beat at times, I'm going to need guys to be there. If not, then we'll do it over and over again 'til somebody is there if I'm beat. But I look forward to that challenge. I want that.feedback

Apr 14 2017

The whole game. He's a big part to what they do. We all know that. I think they know that. But you can't take him out the game and think that you can win. Because they got a lot of other really good players, role players that make shots, create for others. They guard, they rebound, pass the ball. They got a really good team; they're really good at what they do.feedback

Apr 14 2017

He's been that height for a long time now, so he's mastered it. He's really good at what he does. Coming off, pulling up, shooting shots. Getting to the rim, getting to the free throw line. 5[-foot-]8, 6-8, whatever it is, the guy knows how to put the ball in the basket.feedback

Apr 09 2017

It's going to make a big difference. Especially whenever he gets into a rhythm and he's making those shots that he always takes and he normally makes. That's what we want. We want him out there comfortable, confident and playing basketball without thinking. He's getting back to that.feedback

Apr 05 2017

I see him out there playing basketball. It's good to see him out there, obviously. But I just want him to come back whenever he knows he can go 100 percent, not hold back.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I always look at it as nobody picked us to be in the playoffs. Nobody picked us to win anyways. I'm just out there playing basketball. I want to win, I think everybody knows that. I'm just doing what everybody asks of me, so to speak.feedback

Apr 01 2017

That's what I want to do. No disrespect to any of my teammates or anybody like that, but Fred was like, Hey Jimmy, are you tired?' And I said, No, I want to play. I want to be the reason that we win.' He was looking out for me, telling me we had another one tomorrow [Sunday at the New Orleans Pelicans], but I told him I'm not worried about tomorrow, I'm worried about the right now. Whatever they need for me to do, I'm going out there and I'm doing it.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I do. Why? Because I'm not supposed to be here anyway. I'm supposed to miss shots and I'm supposed to fail. Everybody always picks me to do that but it's OK. I like all the so-called pressure. I just want to go out there and show that I belong.feedback

Mar 26 2017

Everybody that I talk to. I live with people that think that they know so much about basketball. So I got to sit there and deal with that. Hell, I even think about it sometimes. It's like, How?, Why?' And there's no answer for it because you never know what team is going to show up on any given day. It's sad, but it's the truth.feedback

Mar 26 2017

I don't think anybody plays this game to lose. Who would waste their time to have a long summer, grueling offseason, come into preseason and practice two times a day, have back-to-backs, four in five nights -- just to say, Ah, s---. I want to go home'? I don't anybody in here thinks like that. We all want to win. We all want to see ourselves in the playoffs.feedback

Mar 13 2017

It looked nice. It looked really good. Everybody was in rhythm. Everybody was taking the open looks that they were given, driving and kicking. It looked really great even when we came in here and watched it at halftime. That's the way that the basketball is supposed to be moving.feedback

Mar 07 2017

The great thing about our sport is it can be played by anyone. I see 90-year-olds and 10-year-olds.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I want the young guys being aggressive, shooting the ball when they're open, attacking the rim when you can. That's only going to make us better in this long run that's so short with the 19 or so games we have left. We'll be ok.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I think everybody knows who's going to get the ball in the fourth quarter. Give or take that DWade's out, that [Rajon] Rondo's out. They did a good job of making me give the ball up, double team. Obviously that was their scouting report, I could hear them yelling it all the way from the other end of the floor. But I'll take the shots that we got.feedback

Mar 04 2017

I want to get everybody involved. I think that's what coaches want me to do. I think that's what everybody wants me to do. I'm trying to do that. I think we all know I can shoot the ball at any time. Good shot, bad shot, but I don't want to do that. I don't care what my stats look like, man. Just win me the game.feedback

Mar 04 2017

We can't turn the ball over. I think that's the main thing. We were whipping that ball over in the first half, taking care of it, getting easy shots. In the second half, we didn't do that. That was the game within itself. They were getting out in transition. They were making their shots. They were guarding. And you saw what happened.feedback

Jan 02 2017

I was just playing basketball. I didn't even know how many points I had. I just had a groove. Coach kept drawing up the same play.feedback

Dec 03 2016

I think we know what we're capable of if we play basketball the right way and do what we're supposed to do.feedback
