JOSIAH JOHNSON: Hey, boomtho said Butler won't do that again. I don't know, Rod. I think Jimmy is out here really getting it, OK? The ankle looks like it's good. He's salty. He's really-- you know what I'm saying? He's got hood [BLEEP] tendencies. So sometimes when your back's against the wall, those are your tendencies where you're just--

LAJETHRO JENKINS: Survival mode.

JOSIAH JOHNSON: Survival mode just takes over. And I'm going to have to go get those 40 picks because I know I'm kicking it to Kelly Olynyk. I know Duncan Robinson's booty cheeks are squoze.

LAJETHRO JENKINS: Oh, bro, bro, bro, bro. Duncan-- that's the thing. I mean, we didn't-- we didn't, like, Duncan didn't hit a 3 for real. I think maybe had two 3's. He beat you. I mean, he was pretty much 0 for until like that last minute when he hit a 3 and comfortably shot one.

I mean, he was butt naked and still missing 3's. You know what I mean? Like, LeBron fourth quarter gave me-- ah, I wouldn't go there. I wouldn't go to 2011.

ZACH SCHWARTZ: It is interesting, though, Jimmy's--

LAJETHRO JENKINS: I wouldn't go there, Josiah! I wouldn't go there! He-- bro, 2011 vibes? He had what? Eight points in a game?


LAJETHRO JENKINS: That's not-- this ain't the Bron we got, bro.

ZACH SCHWARTZ: He did seem annoyed. But I wouldn't-- I'm not going that far.

LAJETHRO JENKINS: Yeah, I'm not. But, I mean--


ZACH SCHWARTZ: --to win a title.

LAJETHRO JENKINS: Like, we don't need to know. We don't need any more of that. I think we're not-- when I step back, we realize he's dead. He don't have the legs for it anymore. You know, that little, eh, eh, eh.


LAJETHRO JENKINS: Everybody [INAUDIBLE] It was cute during the-- during the regular season. We ain't really rolling in the finals.


JOSIAH JOHNSON: These are grown men they're playing against. Obviously, the Heat have basketball players too. I think there's too much with the-- like, the LeBron haters making a bigger deal of Dragic and Bam not playing.


JOSIAH JOHNSON: And, I mean, look, the playoffs are the playoffs. This is the best team that came out of the Eastern Conference. They're here for a reason. It wasn't like they just skated through the East. They gave hands to your favorite team.

So they deserve to be here. They have dudes on their squad. Jimmy Butlers a dog. And we already said don't get caught up in the mistake of what happened in other places. You're saying Jimmy Butler and what he can do.

And I think that brings me to another point. A lot of times we blame players for situations that they don't put themselves in. You know what I'm saying? Like, they're trying to get in the team, get in that flow. And if dude's don't have it, they don't have it. You know, Jimmy Butler's a special breed of dude-- very rare. But put in the right situation, he can flourish.
