Butler said: "The most important thing I learned here is to trust my teammates forever, forever, and forever. The more important thing I learned is that playing with this group of people is true. Interesting. I am very grateful to be able to play with these guys and think it is a gift."
The Heat’s insider Adebayor also said: “When you can be with these brothers every day, you will feel that this season does not seem to be that long.”
In the past, whether it was in the Minnesota Timberwolves or the Philadelphia 76ers, even though Butler performed well, people always thought that he was a destabilizing factor in the locker room and did not regard him as a team leader. This season, Butler joined the Heat and successfully proved that he is a great team leader. The Heat players are also very convinced by this tough big brother. Although losing, the internal atmosphere of this Heat team is very harmonious and the future can be expected!
Heat veteran guard Dragic has missed many key games because of a torn plantar fascia injury. In this game, Dragic insisted on returning from injury. Although it failed to help the team win, Dragic's spirit deserves admiration.
He said: "My only regret is that there is no time for me to recover. This is really difficult. The past 10 days have been like hell for me. I really want to fight side by side with my teammates. The Lakers do Performance is better than us."
