In a recent proclamation, Jimmy declared that he will “whoop y’all a**” in the upcoming season, meaning he will beat everyone on the way to the top. Jimmy seems to have ‘The Godfather’ Pat Riley’s support as Pat has publicly endorsed Jimmy’s bold statement. The $3 billion franchise owner has stepped up to the plate in support of the Miami Heat icon.

Pat, who is also the President of the team, spoke about what makes Jimmy Butler stand out among the others. He said about Jimmy, “He doesn’t fear the moment. He rises to the occasion — he always has. And that’s why he’s Jimmy. Freakin’. Butler.” Pat isn’t wrong in saying this.

As President of the team, Pat seems to have a soft spot for Jimmy, and rightfully so. Jimmy has proved time and again that he is an excellent asset to the team. His contributions have managed to take the team to the finals twice. Apart from this, he has continuously proven that he is one of the best players in the league. With Damian Lillard exiting the team, this also puts a lot of pressure on Jimmy.
