Jimmy Butler had one more opponent to go up against after beating the Boston Celtics on Monday — the Miami Heat star came face-to-face with a bumblebee during his postgame press conference … and his reaction is hilarious!!
It all went down shortly after the Heat finished off the Cs in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to avoid becoming the first team in NBA history to blow a 3-0 lead … but before he could put his focus on Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets, Jimmy had a much bigger problem on his hands.
As the series MVP was answering a question about his upcoming matchup in the NBA Finals, he abruptly paused his response to address an intruder.
“Oh my God, y’all saw that?!” a shocked Butler asked as he put his hands up in defense. “Goddamn bumblebee.”
To Butler’s credit, he quickly regained his composure to finish his answer … but understandably, that was the end of his media availability.
It wasn’t the only viral moment of Butler’s night — he was also spotted rejecting the Eastern Conference Finals Championship trophy from his teammate, Bam Adebayo … appearing to say “I’ll hold the next one” during the postgame ceremony.
The Heat have a few days before going up against the Nuggets on Thursday … and hopefully, Jimmy brings some bug spray for the trip.
