There’s no denying that Jimmy Butler is an incredibly fascinating person, and it’s not hard to see why.
It’s no secret that people have been talking about a possible romantic relationship between Shakira and Jimmy Butler. This started when Shakira broke up with her partner of many years, Gerard Pique. The split was so bad that Shakira even released a song dissing him. But the gossip about her and Jimmy Buckets really heated up during the Miami Heat’s impressive playoff performance. Some of this was helped along by the fact that Shakira now lives in Miami herself. Finally, Jimmy Butler took it upon himself to address the rumors head-on and put an end to all the speculation.
With the upcoming regular season just around the corner, ‘Himmy’ sat down for an interview with Rolling Stone to discuss various aspects of his life, particularly focusing on his role as the current Eastern Conference Finals MVP.
During an interview, the interviewer asked Jimmy Butler if he was dating Shakira due to rumors circulating. He responded by stating that while she is an incredible person and talent, people tend to make things up, and just because they are friends and her sons are fans of basketball doesn’t mean they are dating. He emphasized that just because people hang out, it doesn’t imply they’re involved romantically. He added that she’s cool, and that’s all he has to say. Although some might still consider the possibility of them being together, Butler’s statements can put speculations to rest as his team heads towards the Playoffs. However, his phrasing might lead to different interpretations.
The possibility of a super team emerging in the Eastern Conference looms as a result of the recent blockbuster trade that sent Damian Lillard to the Milwaukee Bucks. Throughout the summer, it was widely speculated that Lillard would head to Miami, but for various reasons, the deal fell through.
Following the news of the trade, Jimmy Buckets took to his Instagram. He seemed disappointed as he left a comment saying, “The NBA, gosh… they should look into the Bucks for tampering. I didn’t say it, but I heard it from someone.” Despite Butler’s disappointment with the trade, it seems that the Bucks are now the favorites for the upcoming season. Will we witness Playoff Jimmy once more, or will the Bucks overpower everyone in the NBA?
