Jimmy Butler has been one of the best players in the NBA playoffs.
The Miami Heat have made it all the way to the NBA Finals after surviving the play-in competition.
The performance of Jimmy Butler has led to this unprecedented success for an eighth-seed.
Through the first three rounds, he has put up an unbelievable performance after another.
He is averaging 29.9 points, 6.9 boards, 5.6 assists, and 2.1 steals in the playoffs as Game 5 against the Boston Celtics approaches.
The NBA playoffs are the time when players truly make their mark on the league. Although, one observer thinks the Miami Heat player is making a compelling case for himself during this stretch.
On a recent episode of ESPN's "Get Up," host Mike Greenberg discussed Butler's chances of being inducted:
If he leads this club to an NBA Finals, I think that would be the biggest accomplishment of what I think is evolving into a Hall of Fame career.
