Jimmy Butler is a man that oozes confidence. Whether it be in the gym, taking on the Minnesota Timberwolves starters with a bunch of G-League players, or strutting the streets of Philadelphia in a trendy outfit, Butler is always doing his thing.
That was the case during the 76ers team practice ahead of Saturday's first-round NBA Playoff matchup. Butler was seen wearing a Philadelphia 76ers crop top shirt while participating in the shootaround.
It's good to see Butler channeling his inner-Ezekiel Elliott, although Philly fans might not be too pleased considering Elliott is on a rival team. Still, Butler is confidently rocking the bold fashion statement at practice.
I dare someone to throw some shade at Butler, it may just be the last thing you do.
With Joel Embiid considered doubtful for Saturday's clash, the 76ers will look to Butler to provide some additional minutes and scoring.

Let's hope he can step up and lead the 76ers to a win on their home floor. He doesn't seem to be lacking the conviction to leave his mark on Game 1.
