Jimmy Butler Says He Could Play WR in NFL; Would Be Better Than Antonio Brown

Jimmy Butler believes he would be a better NFL wide receiver than Demaryius Thomas and Antonio Brown.


Speaking at a Team USA basketball practice, Butler told ESPN he would be better than two of the best wideouts in the entire league (Brown is unquestionably the best right now).

"I really love the game of football. I think I'm really good at it. I could probably take Demaryius Thomas' spot, Antonio Brown's spot," Butler said.


Kevin Durant called him an "idiot" multiple times and said he wouldn't even own him in fantasy football.


"Jimmy's not as good a receiver as the worst receiver in the NFL," Draymond Green said.

Thomas was actually asked by ESPN what he thinks about Butler and gave him some props but said it wouldn't be that close.


"Deep down inside he knows he's not better than me," the Broncos receiver said

And after hearing all the comments, Butler finally caved, acknowledging he might not actually be better at football than the guys who play it professionally.


"I might have exaggerated a little bit about being better than Demaryius and Antonio," Butler said. "But they're not going to find out I said this on camera."
