The article discusses Butler’s decision to delay his debut with the Miami Heat in 2019 to be present for the birth of his daughter. It also mentions his signing of a four-year, $142 million maximum contract with the Heat and his admiration for the Heat’s winning culture.

Finally, the article touches on a heartwarming story involving a young fan from Argentina who traveled with his family to see Butler play but was disappointed when Butler was injured and unable to play.
