Jimmy Butler, Dwayne Wade, and Gabrielle Union attended the United Township vs. Mount Carmel Tuesday night. Why you ask ? Dwayne Wade’s son, Zaire Wade is a freshman at Mount Carmel High School. Unfortunately, Zaire and the Caravans suffered a blowout to United Township 66-33. The loss eliminated Mount Carmel from the Pekin Insurance Holiday Tournament. To see 2 professional basketball players and 1 professional actress come out and show support is incredible. Reports from TMZ say Butler,Wade, and Union stuck around for autographs. If anyone is interested in the actual game I do have the full game below.
Jimmy Butler this season has been nothing short of the Bulls MVP so far. This past Monday Butler played MVP for some students who were apart of the After School Matters program. Butler spent some time with the kids and later took them out to the Nike Chicago store on Michigan Ave. The students were later hit with the incredible news of Jimmy Butler giving each of them a $500 shopping spree. For anyone who knows Butler’s history, they know he overcame many obstacles and loves to give back whenever he can. I always love seeing Chicago athletes be very active in the communities. Chicago right now needs as many positive role models as possible, so to see Butler do something like this is incredible. Keep getting buckets on and off the court Jimmy.
