Going into the NBA’s suspension, only Goran Dragic had a basketball hoop in his home. Jimmy Butler has changed that.

It turns out that Butler is more than just a leader for Miami on the court.

Butler bought a basketball hoop for himself so he can continue getting some shots up. He also sent portable baskets to each Heat player and coach while they wait out the hiatus.

Even Miami’s players on two-way contracts or those who live in condominiums received the hoops. Butler will also donate portable baskets to schools and youth centers around Miami.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has said that he doesn’t know when he’ll be in a position to make a decision about the season. The NBA playoffs were initially scheduled to begin this weekend.
