Jimmy Butler made Heat teammates listen to Nickelback on full blast as punishment for OT loss at Orlando

Do y'all think Jimmy Butler took this too far or is he justified?

He got that dog in him. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

The Heat must've played some absolute trash basketball in Orlando for Jimmy to do something like this.

I mean, Nickelback on full blast?!?! That's harsh!

It looks like the Heat somehow lost by twelve in overtime that night, which is simply outrageous since the period runs for a mere five minutes.

So yeah, I guess I'd say this punishment was justified.

I wonder which song he played.

Sorry, couldn't help it.


Miami ended up getting pounded in OT, and the Heat suffered a 126-114 defeat. This reportedly angered Jimmy Butler so much that he forced his teammates to listen to Nickelback, according to a report from ESPN.

While teammates and staffers were quietly showering and getting dressed, and even eating pizza, Butler decided to blast Nickelback on his stereo, with the voice of Chad Kroeger at maximum volume. The music was reportedly so loud that reporters could hear it clearly from the Miami Heat locker room.

Jimmy Butler is a legend for this, and I hope he continues to use the Nickelback Punishment for the rest of the season.

A little preview of the punishment for you people, and then I'll escort myself out:
