Jimmy Butler is certainly one of the most eccentric personalities in the NBA today. This season in particular has been a little extra colourful for the 4-time all-star as his disgruntled attitude in Minnesota ended up landing him in Philadelphia.
He seems happier, as most would be after heading to a higher-seeded, playoff-bound team, but he also seems to be getting along with teammates better.
That includes former 3rd overall pick Joel Embiid. The Sixers’ centre is one of the only players in the league that may have more of a trash talking persona than Butler, and the two seem to be getting along well. Embiid showed off some of his personality on the YouTube show Hot Ones produced by First We Feast, and on Thursday Butler did the same.
The concept is simple. Get through eating 10 chicken wings. The catch? They get spicier and spicier as they go along. While Butler may seem as though he’s seeping with confidence on the court, he doesn’t seem quite so sure of himself when it comes to these wings. Apparently he doesn’t do spice very well.
The results are thoroughly entertaining.
He may have had a little tougher of a time than his teammate, but he was probably around the same place as Shaq.
Judge for yourself!
