The summer is winding down for Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat and he is using the remainder of his time staying competitive.
No, he’s not being competitive on the basketball court.
Instead, a video released by Butler on Instagram, and shared by ClutchPoints on Twitter, shows Butler playing some intense games of dominoes with others in London.
Throughout the video, Butler and his buddies are seen to be laughing, enthusiastically winning (and losing), and generally having a good time.

Butler has had a very busy summer.
He sat out of the FIBA Basketball World Cup but did enjoy a lot of other sports.
Over the last few years, Butler has become a very big tennis fan and he was globe-trotting to catch some major games throughout the summer.
But he has remained relatively low-key aside from a few public outings.
Of course, he has been preparing for the new season in private, which is very important.
He was a key part of the Heat’s roster last season and his leadership was one of the reasons why they got so far in the postseason.
Now the Heat are hoping to have a similar season in 2023-24.
However, there is one massive question mark floating above that team: Will Damian Lillard be a part of it?
Lillard wants to play for the Heat and the team would be very happy to welcome him.
But as training camp quickly approaches, it sounds like a deal between the Portland Trail Blazers and Heat might not happen.
If that is the case, Butler will remain the team’s leader when the season starts in October.
It’s a good thing Butler is enjoying his summer and relaxing – he is going to need it.NEXT: Reporter Notes Miami Heat's Expectations For Next Season
