VIDEO: Jimmy Butler's Reaction To Losing Lillard

All along, it was supposed to be the Miami Heat. That was the one and only team that Damian Lillard said he was interested in going to. He wanted to play with Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler. But the Portland Trail Blazers had other ideas, as the Heat didn't come up with an offer they were interested in. 

So Lillard goes to Milwaukee in a 3-team blockbuster, and the Heat are left holding the bag. Here's Jimmy Butler posting a hilarious video with some sour grapes:

“Yo NBA man, y’all need to look into the Bucks for tampering… Y’all didn’t hear it from me, but I heard it from somebody.”

And now Heat guard Tyler Herro — who was expected to be dealt if they could have worked out a trade — has echoed Butler's sentiments. 

The Heat were looking to cement themselves as the favorites in the Eastern Conference had they obtained Dame, but now the Bucks find themselves not only the favorites in the East, but the odds-on betting faves for the championship. 

The Bucks have gone from about +600 to +360.  

With Butler now clearly blocked by Lillard and Giannis in the East, it's unclear at this point what the odds are on Butler finding another excuse for the Heat.
