Jimmy Butler's story is a motivational masterpiece

Jimmy Butler is a #1 option on a team heading to the NBA Finals. This comes a year after many predicted the Miami Heat would struggle to even make the playoffs in the eastern conference. 

'Jimmy Buckets' has one of the craziest stories of any NBA player in the history of the game. Through resilience, perseverance, and a consistent approach to see the silver linings of life, Butler has overcome an unbelievable amount of adversity to shine on basketball's biggest stage. 

Not familiar? Here's the Coles' notes of the Jimmy Butler story:

Imagine being kicked out of your house at 13, by your own mother just because of your looks. Or trying to achieve your dreams of playing basketball professionally, but nobody wants you on your team.

If Jimmy Butler doesn't motivate you, check your pulse.
