Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler hit back at his critics Monday and was asked about an apparent incident that took place behind the scenes during his short stint with the Philadelphia 76ers last season.
Butler, who agreed to a four-year, 2 million contract in a sign-and-trade deal with the Heat over the summer, took issue with those criticizing him for taking the deal and going to Miami instead of joining a more established team to become a No. 2 star instead of the main player.

Motherf----rs act like Im not a good basketball player, Butler told Yahoo Sports on Monday. Like for real. Just think about that. Like I cant come in and make a huge difference. Im not going to say carry a team because nobody can do it by themselves and I mean that. Im not putting it all on myself, but I know what Im capable of. I know what I bring to any and all situations, and the group of guys that we have is the group of guys that I want to play with.
Butler added: When I look down the line, and as were talking about it as an organization on this roster, I know what these guys are capable of. These guys are built like me. Were one andthe same, and so theyre only going to get better and theyre not going to get complacent. This is me. I see myself in every one of these guys around this locker room.

Butler then touched on his departure from the 76ers.
Stuff just dont work out, he said. Nobody knows what really went on in Philly, and were going to leave it that way. But it was a great opportunity for me ... All of that will come out whenever its time. Right now is not the time.
Im locked in with this. Im happy, man. Im smiling and my guys want me to be here, my organization wants me to be here, I want to be here and were going to ride this thing until the wheels fall off.
