The NBA world was abuzz on Monday when Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat debuted his brand-new look.
Looking straight out of a MySpace page, Butler embraced his “emo” side and everyone was humored – and slightly confused – by it.
Speaking about “emo” Butler, Richard Sherman said the star player has every reason to be emotional.
“He’s really emotional the Heat didn’t get Damian Lillard,” Sherman said on Tuesday’s episode of “Undisputed.”

Fans of Butler were definitely amused by his Media Day antics.
This isn’t the first time that the six-time All-Star has played with the press and created viral moments.
In fact, just last year he created more headlines due to a different haircut he was sporting.
Butler loves to play around with people, have fun, and not take things too seriously.
However, Sherman has a point when he said that Butler is probably feeling stung after his team missed out on Lillard.
All summer long, people were waiting for some sort of deal to come together between the Heat and Portland Trail Blazers.
In the end, the Heat didn’t sign the iconic guard – and they lost several other important players too.
The defending Eastern Conference champions will now enter the season without the help of Max Strus, Cody Zeller, and Gabe Vincent.
They have surprised fans before and have over-performed according to many.
But not getting Lillard could ultimately limit them in huge ways.
Butler is ready to move on from the debacle of this summer and focus solely on getting his team back to the Finals.
Perhaps this radical new look was a way to redirect attention and put an end to the lingering Lillard chapter.NEXT: Kyle Lowry Talks His Role For The Heat This Season
