Miami Heat Rumors: What to make of Jimmy Butler playing matchmaker?

The Miami Heat are in the middle of a resurgent season.

It started this past offseason as Miami Heat team president and decision-maker Pat Riley declared that he was going big “whale hunting”. He landed his Moby Dick in the form of Jimmy Butler, but no one could have expected that he would come in and have this type of impact on the team and franchise.
