Jimmy Butler’s Instagram Following Win in Milwaukee
I love Jimmy Butler. He goes into Milwaukee and drops 35 points then posts that photo on Instagram afterwards, knowing that he would send everyone spiraling with the troll.
What makes it even funnier, is that Bucks fans are on Twitter saying that the deer pictured “aren’t even actual bucks.”
Yes, you idiots. That’s the entire point of the post.
Keep up. Playoff Jimmy waits for no one. Jimmy Buckets doesn’t “fear the deer” he looks at them like they are just normal, dumb beer that roam around in the woods looking lost and scared, which really, is pretty much what Milwaukee looked like last night after Giannis left the game so it all makes perfect sense.
Look, who knows if the Heat will be able to pull off the massive upset of the Bucks in round one. I highly doubt it, but I do like the thought of Miami just beating up on the Bucks and making their journey to the Eastern Conference Finals as tough as possible while the 76ers dog walk the Brooklyn Nets before facing the Boston Celtics in the second round.
Along with Giannis leaving the game, the Heat also took a hit losing Tyler Herro with a broken hand and will be out 4-6 weeks.
Do the Heat have enough to keep up with the Bucks? We’ll just have to wait and see. At the very least, Miami did their job and won a game on the road to give them a fighting chance.
