Jimmy Butler must be loving the Miami life.

After lifting the Heat to their first NBA Finals appearance in six years, Butler found himself chilling during the well-deserved offseason vacation.

In a series of photos and Instagram Stories, Butler can be seen taking shots at a mini court set up on a yacht while sporting a signed Dwyane Wade jersey.

Wade reposted the photo on Instagram as well, accompanied with several “chilling” emojis.

The two have played for the Bulls years ago and formed a certain level of bond in Chicago.

In one of the press conferences held in the bubble in Orlando, Florida, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra recalled how Wade swore to him and team president Pat Riley that Butler will become the “next guy” to lead Miami.

Wade convinced the current Heat star to choose Miami over any other teams, saying Butler would “fit” with the Heat culture.

Butler did not disappoint as he spearheaded the Heat’s run on his first season en route to a championship appearance since 2014 while unlocking several achievements in tne process.

In Game 3 for instance, Butler unloaded a triple-double performance of 40 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists.

Wade, a three-time NBA champion, had trusted Butler in filling the void he left in Miami since retiring after the 2018-2019 season.

Butler vowed to come back stronger next season, but for now, he’s going to continue enjoying the Miami bayside scenery over a cup of freshly-brewed coffee.
