“You really wouldn’t know who I am unless you’re around me every day,” Butler added. “And for the most part, that’s why I don’t worry too much about what everybody says. If you know me and you’re around me, you know my heart. You know how I go about what I go about.
“I love my teammates,” Butler said. “I don’t think there are too many of them that will tell you I’m a bad teammate.”
Butler’s stay in Philly will be interesting to see unfold, and it will be interesting to see if Butler ends up inking a long term contract with the Sixers next summer.
