About Jimmy Butler

NBA star Jimmy Butler has taken to YouTube to show fans his life both on and off the court. Just like his NBA career, he’s hit the big time online, where he’s amassed nearly 400K subscribers on his YouTube channel. There’s more to his channel than just sports though. Jimmy deftly weaves humor, culture, and his personal background into the stories he creates, which are funny and engaging in every sense. In 2019, he went one-on-one with comedian Kevin Hart, playing only with his left hand in a video that generated more than 6.5M views. With his new digs in Miami, there’s a lot to be seen from Jimmy in 2020.
