Jimmy Butler rips ‘soft’ TJ Warren after altercation: ‘He’s not in my league’

Jimmy Butler did not hold back one bit about his disdain for TJ Warren after the two of them got into it during Wednesday’s game.

In the third quarter of the Miami Heat’s 122-108 win over the Indiana Pacers, Butler and Warren traded words after a hard foul and had to be separated.

Once play resumed, Warren was ejected for taunting Butler following an offensive foul. That led to Butler blowing kisses to Warren, and Warren responding by giving him the middle finger.

After the game, Butler lit into Warren like a Christmas tree.

“To me, I think it’s tough for him because I can guard him and he can’t guard me,” said Butler, per Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. “Because at the end of the day, that’s what it comes down to. Like I said, I think you just gotta watch your mouth in certain situations. There’s some s— that you just don’t say as a man. He gotta see me the next time because I feel like what he said was truly disrespectful. And it’s all good cuz we see him again.

“I ain’t scared of nobody,” Butler continued. “So he talking about, ‘We gonna fight,’ this, that, this, that. It is what it is … He’s soft, he’s soft, he’s not even in my f—ing league. Like, nowhere near me. If I was their coach, I would never put him on me ever again. Like, no. Put somebody else on me because I’m gonna tear his a– up every time … He can’t do nothing with me. Like when I say that he’s trash, I mean that. He’s not in my league. I take it as disrespect if you ever put him on me.”

The Heat next play the Pacers on Mar. 20 in Miami, but for now, it looks like Butler did Warren even dirtier than he did Trae Young.
