76ers’ Jimmy Butler Believe They Can Do Something Special

The Philadelphia 76ers are heavily expected to go on a deep playoff run, perhaps to the NBA Finals, but some first round immaturity surfaced that had everyone thinking a bit harder about their projections.

Sixers forward Jimmy Butler, a leader of the team, believes that despite the apparent issues the team is capable of doing something “special”.

“I’ll be here in Philly for a little bit, and this will be the next chapter,” Butler said, according to ESPN’s David Fleming. “We have the opportunity to do something special. We know what we can do. We talk about it every single day with the coaches in practice and when we watch ourselves on film. We know what we can do.

We know. It’s all about going out there now and supposedly showing the world, even though I highly doubt anyone on this team gives a damn what the world thinks anyway.”
