    Wait- the Rockets fans said he would opt-in for $15/yr less than the max to play here instead. Trump-loving MAGAts said it- it must be true.

    Key words are "The max". Just based on Butler's hx, i get the feeling like those other words didn't mean that much.

    There is a Super Max so normal max does not even matter that much these days.

    If he goes to LA, the Lakers get stronger. Why do yall want that? But I'll believe it when I see it. These sports "insiders" are usually full of shyt.

    Lol...

    Jimmy Butler would go play in China if given the max. Not really news. He's always made it clear that making the most money is his priority.

    I don't blame him at all and if I were a player getting paid the max to go play with Lebron in LA? Nothing to complain about there.

    Butler and BronBron are not going to work well together. Thats why we want this to happen.

    Tons of guys are from LA.

    Kawhi is the best one among them.

    Hollywood Jimmy!

    He wants to do television and movies, so I am sure that he would jump at a chance to go to play for the Lakers.

    He loves the celebrities in Los Angeles as well.

    .... dude... that's what i said, bruh.

    Jimmy coming to Houston is a freaking pipe-dream. the only thing that would change my mind is if i hear some reports that Harden be calling Jimmy everyday.
