Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler received yet another accolade recently.
He was chosen as one of the NBA's Top 100
players by the website The Ringer. Butler checked in a No. 16 on the list. The top five were Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks),
Steph Curry (Golden State), Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets), Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks) and Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets).
"Butler thrives on the most thankless parts of the game—the dead sprints down the floor, the body-blow box-outs, the hard-fought second chances," the website wrote.
"And his career is proof that winning doesn’t have to be pretty, and doesn’t often come easy. Part of what makes Butler
so effective is that he’s good at almost everything. Yet if he does have a single, standout skill, it’s his capacity to grind
out points from nothing, turning the toughest looks in and around the paint into an implausibly steady source of offense."
Heat center Bam Adebayo checked in at No. 32 while guard Tyler Herro was No. 65. Butler was the highest ranked Heat player while Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo also make list
