Jimmy Butler is Living Up to His Initials in Philly

Jimmy Butler is the epitome of a hard worker. After spending a year at a small two-way community college in Texas, Butler worked his way up to Marquette University where he would go on to knock big-time game-winners against UConn and St. John’s.

The two-time All-Big East Honorable Mention was later drafted by the Chicago Bulls as the 30th pick in the 2011 NBA draft. Since then, has racked up the accolades with being named a 4x All-Star, 4x All-Defensive Second Team, 2x All-NBA Third Team and the league’s Most Improved Player in 2015.
