Damian Lillard finally reveals the main reason why he join Miami Heat

“I said it; initially, I was like, ‘I want to go to Miami.’ He [Jimmy Butler] was a big part of that. It didn’t happen. I’m here now. But our relationship will be the same. The same respect. It’s just something that didn’t happen. It was out of his control and mine.”
