“Sikeeee I ain’t deleting s**t,” Jimmy Butler mocks Jaylen Brown after Heat’s Game 2 win

Jimmy Butler mocked Jaylen Brown’s famous “don’t let us get one” during the 2023 NBA Playoffs. This happened after the Miami Heat won Game 2 against the Boston Celtics, who were heavily favored despite Butler being out due to injury.

The Celtics were on track to sweep the series, but the Heat surprised everyone with an important 111-101 victory, tying the series before heading to Miami for Games 3 and 4. Butler is still recovering from an MCL sprain, but not with his humor. He made fun of Brown’s comment on Instagram by posting a photoshopped image of himself over Brown’s face, along with the caption, “Feeling cute, might delete later. Sikeeee I ain’t deleting s**t.”

Brown initially made this statement when the Heat led 3-0 in their conference finals series. Although the odds favored Boston’s elimination, Brown suggested the series could turn if the Celtics won Game 4. They did win three consecutive games, but the Heat ultimately won 4-3.

Back then, the Heat had Jimmy Butler on the court, significantly impacting their performance. Without him now, the Celtics are seen as the favorites to win the series. However, Miami’s strong performance in Game 2 indicates they shouldn’t be underestimated, especially considering their ability to outplay Boston.

When will Jimmy Butler be available after Injury

Jimmy Butler is still sidelined due to injury as the Miami Heat start their playoff journey. He missed Game 1 and Game 2 against the Boston Celtics due to injury, which will continue for now.

During FanDuel TV’s “Run It Back” show, Shams Charania discussed Butler’s injury. He mentioned that Butler will unlikely return this postseason because of an MCL injury.

“It’s crazy to me that Jimmy Butler played three quarters with what I’m hearing now was a severe MCL sprain,” Charania said. “He is not gonna be back in this series. This is a rehab that is gonna go at least one month, could be two.”

With Butler out for the series, Miami faces a significant challenge. However, even if his recovery takes two months, he should be fully fit for the next season.
