Jimmy Butler has led the Heat into three of the past four playoffs as an eighth seed, inspiring an extraordinary playoff run and earning widespread respect from teammates and opponents alike. Butler recently joined an exclusive club by becoming only the third Heat player to notch multiple N.B.A playoff games of 35+ points, rebounds, and assists. 1. LeBron James LeBron James, one of the greatest players of his generation in NBA history, is leaving an incredible legacy with Miami Heat. He won two titles while leading them to four consecutive Finals appearances and is all-time leading playoff scorer with 7,652 career points; Michael Jordan trails by over three thousand. James still has two years left on his current contract so he should add even more points to his total. James has been active in his community during his time in Miami. He has worked to reduce social injustice, acting as an inspiration and role model to young people. James has contributed generously to various organizations and charities like ONExONE and the Children's Defense Fund; additionally he never takes an "shut up and dribble" approach when confronting injustices he sees first-hand. As well as his success on the court, James is also an ardent parent. With wife Savanna by his side, he and his three children Bronny, Bryce, and Zhuri provide great strength to James who understands that being an NBA superstar means more than playing games on an arena floor. LeBron has made it his mission to give back to Akron, Ohio where he and his wife are actively involved in community efforts such as working with youth to provide them with opportunities. Furthermore, they've opened UNKNWN -- an art, culture, and food hub - which features art events throughout Akron. LeBron has proven himself an outstanding leader for his teammates as well as in terms of charitable giving. He has promoted team loyalty and togetherness by mentoring younger players while helping the Heat reach the top of their league. LeBron has won over both his peers and fans across the country by showing that he remains the greatest basketball player ever seen on court today and into the future. 2. Michael Jordan Michael Jordan earned fame throughout his NBA career for being one of the greatest players ever seen on court, earning himself the nickname "Air Jordan." Additionally, his leaping ability earned him numerous other nicknames including excellent passer and 3-point shooter; legendary defensive play; as well as being known for being fiercely competitive and earning millions through endorsement deals he also appeared in several movies and television shows. Many expected the Heat to easily win their Eastern Conference finals matchup with Boston Celtics 4-0, yet they had no plans of giving in without a fight - forcing Game 7 instead. Even then, Jimmy Butler played an integral part in their victory. Butler put up 56 points during his playoff performance. He shot 23-of-44 from the field and 7-13 from 3-point range; helping the Heat win 103-84 and becoming only the third Heat player after LeBron James and Chris Bosh to score 25+ points in series-clinching conference finals wins. Jimmy Butler possesses an unmatched combination of skills. As an old-school scorer with impeccable footwork and an endless supply of pump fakes, he was also known for his deadly midrange shooters that could also transform into three point shooters at crucial moments. Additionally, Butler was adept at reading defenses and using teammates effectively. His play in the playoffs has earned him recognition alongside some of the greatest wing players in NBA history, and Game 4 against the Celtics offers him another opportunity to create history. If he can maintain this level of performance against them, Miami Heat could become formidable contenders and could become contenders themselves in the finals - potentially creating another star player! 3. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson, commonly referred to as "The Answer", had an indelible mark on NBA and left his mark both on and off the court. Hailing from southeast Virginia's poorer areas and overcame early legal troubles to become one of Georgetown University's superstars and later the first overall pick in 1996 NBA Draft. Over 14 seasons with Philadelphia 76ers he won four regular season scoring titles and earned 11 All-Star selections; yet was also widely criticized for selfish play and numerous off-the-court transgressions. Iverson was an extraordinary scorer despite his small stature at shooting guard position, using speed, strength, ball handling skills and agility to become one of the deadliest scoring threats ever seen in NBA. His combined abilities of speed, strength and ball control allowed him to lead his 76ers team into two consecutive playoff appearances during his first three years, scoring over 24,000 points with more than 5,000 assists during that span - earning him league MVP award in 2001 as well as being widely acknowledged as one of the greatest NBA players ever. Iverson was widely known for his charismatic personality - which earned him the moniker 'The Answer' for his ability to solve almost any basketball court challenge - which made him such an icon for generations that came of age during the '90s. As one of many trendsetters both on and off the court, his unique style heavily influenced by hip-hop culture made him instantly recognisable by younger fans who looked up to him as an icon. As a youngster, Iverson found himself involved with law enforcement, eventually being sentenced to prison after being arrested for attacking a white woman at a bowling alley. Though there are varying accounts of what transpired at this incident, many saw this momentous event as the turning point that changed their perceptions of him forever. Iverson was released from prison when the Virginia Governor granted him conditional clemency, enabling him to accept a basketball scholarship at Georgetown University. After two seasons on scholarship with Georgetown - two in which he played as captain for both seasons before being selected with the first pick in 1996 NBA draft for Philadelphia 76ers and Detroit Pistons before finishing up his professional career playing professionally for Besiktas of Turkey for two more seasons before retiring as an athlete. 4. Dwyane Wade Jimmy Butler is hard to pinpoint in terms of quantifiable traits, yet any attempt at doing so would do his intangible achievements a disservice. A brick of a defender, all-time competitor. A physical scorer with sublime footwork and an endless supply of pump fakes that draws fouls. A lethal midrange shooter who somehow transforms into an efficient 3-point assassin in key playoff moments and games. And one of the smartest players in this league and all-around team leader. Butler led an amazing comeback against Milwaukee Bucks during Game One of the playoffs, leading Miami Heat to victory 128-126 in overtime Wednesday and sending them on their way towards facing fifth-seeded New York Knicks on Sunday in Round Two. Butler was an invaluable playmaker who proved instrumental in Miami's win against Milwaukee and their four game sweep of them. A true all-around player and incredible leader for their side. Darius was the leader of the 2004 "Undefeated" squad that captured a championship, earning unanimous first-team All-Rookie selection and finishing third in Rookie of the Year voting. Additionally, he was honored as Eastern Conference Player of the Week on seven separate occasions and twice named NBA Most Valuable Player. Wade has long been recognized for his charitable initiatives within his community, from raising money to fight cancer to funding youth basketball programs and the arts. Most recently, his Wade's World Foundation collaborated with Marquette's Hartman Literacy and Learning Center on creating a summer reading program through its Wade's World Foundation. Tyler Herro, Victor Oladipo and Kyle Lowry have all been out due to injuries, yet the Heat are up three-1 against a Bucks team that everyone expected would win the East. Thanks to Bam Adebayo, Duncan Robinson and Butler who have all made contributions that have allowed this special group of teammates to persevere together through some very trying times - making a statement. This team will make history soon enough!
