Lance Stephenson Claps Back at Jimmy Butler via Social Media
- Updated: November 4, 2019
In a recent episode of the “Winging It With Vince Carter” podcast, Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler used former NBA player Lance Stephenson as an example when talking about how he knew he could make it in the NBA.
“If [Stephenson’s] in the league then I can be in the league,” Butler said. “He is a talented a– player. Don’t get me wrong, but if he can do it, I can do it.”
Turns out, Stephenson, who currently plays in China for the Liaoning Flying Leopards, caught wind of Butler’s comments and didn’t take too kindly to them.
Stephenson tweeted at Butler directly on Monday afternoon, responding to the comments that he clearly took as a slight.
Idk how to take that comment by @jimmybutler 🤷🏿♂️. That boy look up to me don’t downgrade talent I motivate you to work hard and get in that gym. You love my game don’t be scared to say it.

Butler has long been known for not being afraid to ruffle some feathers. While Love has yet to respond to Butler’s comments, it looks like the Heat star certainly got underneath Stephenson’s skin.
