The Miami Heat tied up the NBA Finals on Sunday night with a 111-108 victory over the Denver Nuggets. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo were both key contributors in the victory, both scoring 21 points. Their stat lines were mirror images, with Butler adding 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Meanwhile, Adebayo contributed 4 rebounds and 9 assists. Furthermore, Adebayo was the last scorer of the game, sinking two free throws to put the up five with 45 seconds to go.
The NBA Finals continue in Miami on June 7, with both sides looking to take that all-important lead. However, Miami’s clutch win isn’t the only thing people are talking about in regard to Game 2. Turns out there’s a little bit of behind-the-scenes footage from the post-game press conference that’s going viral. Furthermore, the video shows a fun side to Butler and Adebayo’s off-court friendship. The pair have been teammates since 2019 when Butler joined the Heat. Adebayo was drafted by Miami in 2017. Additionally, they have both won Olympic medals with Team USA, just not together. Butler won his in 2016 and Adebayo took home gold in 2020.
Butler Moons Adebayo
The video, which appears to come from Butler’s Instagram and has since been widely shared, shows Butler backstage at the Game 2 press conference. Bam Adebayo can be seen on stage, addressing the media. Butler turns around and drops his pants before beginning to try and attract Adebayo’s attention. Someone can be heard trying to call Butler off but the Miami star persists. Adebayo finally notices, presumably getting a full view of Butler’s ass before returning to the press conference and asking a reporter to repeat their question.
It’s a fun and wholesome moment. but not wholly unexpected. Butler is a well-known prankster. Last month, it was reported that Butler had developed a love of country music from one notable prank. Attempting to prank his college teammates with Tim McGraw’s “Don’t Take The Girl”, Butler ended up falling in love with the genre. Elsewhere, Butler’s infamous dreadlocks from preseason camp were also revealed to be a masterful troll from the NBA superstar. What do you think about Butler’s prank? Let us know in the comments.
