Jimmy Butler is a big Taylor Swift fan. We’ve known that for years. We’ve seen him singing her songs and even dancing to some of them on video. His teammates hate it, but it doesn’t matter. He keeps some Swift on the locker room playlist.
On Tuesday, the NBA on TNT crew dug up one of the videos with Butler dancing to a T-Swift song in the Bulls’ locker room back in 2014. Here he is, just getting dressed with no shirt or socks on.
Then, clearly, his favorite part comes on and he just loses it. He stops everything and just begins to bust moves. It was absolutely hilarious back then and it’s still pretty funny today.
Dwyane Wade and Shaq gave Butler a hard time for his moves. Wade gave him a 9, which was clearly a reference to his grade for Aaron Gordon’s final dunk in the dunk contest last year.
A couple of days later, though, Taylor Swift actually stumbles upon the video of the crew cracking jokes on Butler. So she gave him her own grade.
A whole 13 out of 10. Man. That’s some confidence.
Welp. Pack it up. That’s the only grade that matters. Congrats to Jimmy. No one can tell him anything now.
