After the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, the wishes poured in for the victors. But former Laker Pau Gasol hasn’t forgotten about his friend, Jimmy Butler, who ended up on the losing side.

Gasol sent out a tweet addressed to Butler, telling him how he is proud of him, calling him one of the best players currently as well.

I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge how proud I am of @JimmyButler. You’re one of the best players in the world, and a great leader!!

Congratulations to you and to the @MiamiHEAT on an outstanding season 👏🙌🔝

Butler and Gasol’s Chicago connection

After being drafted by the Bulls, Butler spent six seasons in Chicago. Gasol joined him in 2014, and that’s where this friendship began. They shared the locker room for two seasons and during this time, the two of them developed a strong connection. Both off-court and on-court too.

While the Clippers were known as the Lob-City team back then, Pau and Jimmy were also known for their lobs. Gasol is one of the best passing bigs of all time and Butler was at the end of many lobs defense-splitting passes too.

For Gasol’s 38th birthday, Butler went all the way to meet him in Spain and participate in Gasol’s Invitational Basketball game.

Will Jimmy Butler and the Heat bounce back?

Before the season began, the Heat were dubbed to be a future super team. They had just acquired Butler and had a lot of cap space for the highly coveted 2021 free agency. So the two seasons prior were supposed to be a development period.

But Jimmy and the team had other ideas. After finishing as the 5th seed, they surprised everyone in the playoffs. They dominated the East and cruised to the NBA Finals. Although they ended up losing, they gave a good fight to the Lakers. Nobody expected them to reach here but they proved everyone wrong.

Heading into the next season, the Heat shouldn’t be looking to change much. If they can retain their free agents, they will continue to be a solid team in the East.
