As for Johnson, it won’t be much of a surprise if he and Butler end up becoming close. Both are known to be incredibly intense individuals who love nothing more than the competitive aspect of basketball.
Perhaps the most exciting moment of the video is when Butler can be heard yelling from the court.
“Game time! Game time,” he exclaims excitedly with teammates off-camera echoing his call.
The Heat are just under one month away from opening night on Oct. 23. In that time, Butler and the rest of the Heat will look to not only grow as individuals, but also grow as a team as well.
From this video, it seems like that growth is already starting to take place.
