Jimmy Butler has gone from an underdog in the NBA to one of its most respected players. Few people expected Butler to have the success that he did in the NBA when he first entered. And if we look back at his life, Butler did not have an easy road to the NBA.

Butler’s childhood was not at all easy. His father was not around when he was growing up, which meant that his mother had to raise him by himself.

But that did not last long, as Butler revealed in an interview years ago that his mother kicked him out when he was just 13 years old. She didn’t like the way he was behaving and told him to leave the house.
