Yes, the Lakers won. And yes LeBron won finals MVP. But I’m not going to forget the man on the other side of the court. Jimmy Butler had a historic NBA Finals, and at times matched LeBron blow for blow. What I don’t get is why we aren’t talking more about what Jimmy just did. He averaged 26.2 points, 9.8 assists, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.2 steals on 55% from the field. He led his team in every category, points, assists, rebounds, steals, and blocks. He pulled a LeBron. In fact, he legit did what LeBron did.
Heading into the playoffs, most people weren’t expecting Jimmy Butler to have the playoffs he did and it made sense. Butler wasn’t on the level of superstars, he was just a really good player that put in a lot of effort, an All-Star. In the regular season, Butler averaged 19.9 points, 6 assists, and 6.7 rebounds on 45% from the field and 24.5% from 3. This is showing a trend that has become even more apparent in the past few years. The difference between the regular season and playoffs.
Aite remember there was a time where the regular season was just a formality, when the whole world pretty much knew that it was going to be the Warriors and Cavs in the finals. The regular season began to lose meaning. There was also this whole load management wave going on which meant stars were already giving less importance to the regular season. We even started to coin names for players who performed specifically in the playoffs. Playoff Rondo which if you look at the stats is a real thing. We had Playoff Kawhi who would turn into possibly the best player in the world in the playoffs after being a star in the regular season. Heck we even had Playoff LeBron, the whole idea of him coasting in the regular season, saving himself for the playoffs. I think it makes sense. Players should elevate themselves in the toughest of moments or at least keep up similar production since playoff defense means more. Jamal Murray went to another level these playoffs, but his performances seem more like really good shooting days and he’ll have to prove it again. And now we have Jimmy Butler. Here’s a guy who legit didn’t average 20 points a game this season or last season. A guy that was written off as a locker room problem despite helping every single franchise he was a part of. The thing with Butler is that he really could perform like that in the regular season since it wasn’t about knockdown shooting with no one to really stop him, but he doesn’t.
And then we have the other side of the spectrum, the players that do well in the regular season but fall short in the playoffs. This makes more sense because defense tightens up in the playoffs and the main go to’s get taken away. We have players like Giannis who dominate in the regular season, but fail to replicate in the playoffs. Paul George was 3rd in MVP voting in 2019 and has horrible games. This year he looked like Pandemic P. The Lakers wanted the Clippers and then this happened. Just look at the stats comparison. Russell Westbrook has put up some tremendous historical stats in the regular season, but fails to do the same in the playoffs. At times, he can shoot his team out of the game.
So what does this all mean? We already know that playoff basketball is different. But does the regular season doesn’t mean as much to the players? We award accolades based on the regular season, 1st Team All-NBA, 1st Team All-Defense. These are what we measure players’ legacies but it lacks context. As a basketball fan, I wouldn’t want the regular season to feel like a long prelude to the playoffs but that’s what players like Jimmy Butler are doing.
So what’s the solution? It’s not as if you can fine players for not playing their best like we did with load management. Which is why I’m saying Jimmy Butler proved the entire NBA wrong. He was the last straw of sorts. The Warriors with KD would coast, they were just too dominant. They got in the right form at the right time, but even their stars weren’t like lemme not be a superstar. There’s a difference between resting because you’re an older player or in your prime, healthy, and still resting. I honestly think we should have awards for the playoffs besides Finals MVP because playoff basketball is a whole different sport. Players like Jimmy Butler make us reevaluate the value of players that we have and the value of the regular season.

  • The playoffs is where the mental side of the game is most important. During the regular season most guys aren't as locked in on the scouting report, hell the coaches are still compiling the damn thing. In the playoffs it's not good enough to just be more physically gifted or a better shooter etc. You have to beat a team 4 times to advance to the next round. Rondo does better in the playoffs because he's so cerebral. The biggest key in what the lakers did was having guys like rondo, lebron, Danny green, Ad etc. That coaching staff was ridiculous as well. They beat teams mentally more than anything else. They knew guys tendencies, likes and dislikes etc. The forced guys to take shots from uncomfortable spots. It's the same reason Jeremy Lin was so good in his initially run. Very little game tape and time to study him with an unorthodox style made him impossible to guard but once there was enough game tape to form a scouting report insanity over. The regular season has really always been like this

  • You can't expect an athlete to max out playing 3 to 4 games a week traveling all over the country for 7 months and still ball out for the playoffs. If the NBA was a twice a week league then I'm with you but let's be realistic. These guys are world class athletes don't get me wrong but they are human first. Also the playoffs cut down on travel tremendously and a easier daily routine takes over which can explain the increase in intensity

  • Saying that about Butler just proves you either didnt watch any of regular season games or you dont understand how basketball works in the first place. There were at least 10 games in regular season that Jimmy literally saved by himself, nevermind the ones they won easily. Besides between playoffs and regular season there are about 110 games in 10 months. To keep a constant playoff level for a 110 games is impossible, what Jimmy is doing is the right and smart thing to do, you pick your battles carefully, you play the games you need to play at the max and leave the rest to the teammates, Bam (when not beeing a donkey like post allstar this year) Dragič and the rookies can close out the rest. Butler started the season at a high level right away, he needed to establish himself in the culture, he did the right thing,went out and showed right away why he was here and besides the non bandwagon fans and the team everybody else, the media and their "experts" and youtubers did not understand what that ment. Jimmy or should i better say the Heat are not a regular team, they dont do rebuilds,load management any of that shit, what they do is go out game to game and give their all. How many times we seen Jimmy Goran and Jae got to Spo and UD to be put in the game when they saw they were needed and knew their beeing there will make a difference. This video is a prime example of media and youtubers speak before they think and talk about something they clearly dont understand. Miami just spit in the face if the whole league, and this is the best content you can come up with?

  • I enjoy your videos. You often make good points in your content. I understand what you are saying in this video. You just omitted a large piece of the puzzle. ESPN is the one media outlet that deserves a lot of blame for the lowly stare of pro sports in America. ESPN work in conjunction with the leagues while controlling a majority of the media hype surrounding the NBA and NFL in particular. ESPN was great back in the day when Sportscenter was the flagship and every sports fan tuned in religiously. All that changed around 2011 , when ESPN forged a multi billion dollar contract with the NFL and the NBA to broadcast games on the network and sister network ABC. This deal alongside the rise of the sports debate paradigm changed everything. ESPN had its personalities push biased narratives instead of objective reporting. ESPN convinced the two most popular leagues in the country that it would be in their best interests to promote the big market teams, I.e.Lakers, Cowboys, Patriots. Promote your stars like never before, which is why you hear these momos talk about goats in both sports even if one of those so called goats is not even close(LeBron). ESPN was the first I heard to call the regular season meaningless. All to fit narratives mostly to cover up for big name stars they promote who were underperforming in the regular season. They devalued the regular season in an age where young people barely have the attention span to read a wordy post like mine. . ESPN the first to try to devalue championships because one guy followed the example from another guy and joined forces with a great team to form a juggernaut. That juggernaut was formed because the NBA chose to force a rivalry between a player and a great team(that up until they were cheated in 2016, owned that player head to head). If the league wasn’t fake, and allowed corporate sponsor money in the form of ad revenue control their every move, the league might have some actual parity. The leagues both use refs/officials to control certain games. It’s beyond pathetic and if we don’t make it be known that we want true competitive sports and NOT sports entertainment, then we will be subject to this bullshit. Oh and it will get worse. I mean, case in point, the LeBron Mickey Mouse club ring? They gave that bum carte blanche on his lame drives to the basket. If you think different, it’s because you’ve never played b-ball competitively. ESPN destroyed modern sports and while Jimmy Butler was playing better than the supposed MVP of the Finals, you won’t hear a peep out of ESPN concerning thst. No, they’d rather hold ridiculous debates comparing a true all time great to a manufactured, corporate Johnny bravo(Brady Bunch) who fits the “Face of the League” suit 😂😂

  • There is no problem. Coaching, strategies, time of season, load management have always been variables to manipulate since the leave started. Depending on the goals of organizations, teams individual and the incentives to excel, you get equivalent work effort. The biggest difference you see in Jimmy is being apart of a "Heat organization culture " which fits his personality and play style. The Heat have rebuilt them selves to surpass other teams which were thought of as more automatic finals teams. They deserve a ton of credit for out smarting and out working other teams to get to the finals. Their injuries contributed to their lack of total production at finals. But, they still made it to a game 6. It is not a problem that Jimmy exposes but opportunities for those which can "rise to the occasion". Because team that make a habit of coasting can be caught.😊

  • something to add... I think the reg season is about making sure you make the playoffs (obviously) but I think that the awards are taken lightly because of the way they are distributed.. for e.g mvp is best player on best team one year then it is triple double Westbrook. Then it is 3rd seeded rockets with harden and then back to best player on best record again. it becomes a joke rather than a benchmark.

  • Plays offs are a half court game and a defensive game. It is different from the regular season and it has been for a long time. Also, when you are playing a seven game series the great teams can adjust their offense and defense accordingly. This is not the case in the regular season where you are not playing a seven games series. The regular season is a race to get a good seating for the playoffs and then it becomes a different game.

  • If you know anything about sport, you realize that your regular performance will get you nowhere. The team that win championship always do a little extra. Listen to Shaq, if you average 2 rebound get one to two crucial rebound . You call them play off guys but this is what it take to Win championship. All the great one knows each guy must do something he does not do in the regular season.

  • this problem has been raise for a long time. Truth is most players are just coasting specially those already at the star level or super star level and they would just turn on the game when they need to. Most players who goes hard during the season are those who wanna make a name or has something to prove you know so they could sign that big contract. We can't really blame them though cuz there's like 82 games a season and no player would go all out even have of that,,, besides if they lessen the number of games they wouldn't even be able to afford to play the players. but hey like american football only plays a few games but everyone's making some cash... not as big as nba players i think. cuz ave players over there don't make millions? even bench warmers in nba gets to make 10mil or so per year.
