Erik Spoelstra Says LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler Share Key Similarity

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James Lakers

Ahead of the Miami Heat’s contest against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra praised Jimmy Butler and said he has an important commonality with two former Heat superstars.

Needless to say, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are two of the greatest NBA players of all time. Both have numerous individual honors and accolades to their name, not to mention three NBA championships apiece.

There’s something to be said about those who show total dedication to their craft, whether it’s an athlete, doctor, lawyer, politician or someone in another profession.

Many Heat fans know by now that Butler is showing that type of dedication. Much has been made of his habit of getting in workouts at 3 a.m., as well as his tendency to get on teammates, both on the Heat and on his previous teams.

Miami is sitting pretty with a 6-2 record, and Butler has contributed mightily to that quick start by averaging 18.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 3.0 steals per game.
