In Jimmy Butler: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Best All-Around Shooting Guards, you will learn the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier shooting guards, Jimmy Butler. Since quickly emerging as one of the key leaders of the Chicago Bulls franchise, Jimmy Butler has estbalished himself as one of the best two-way players to play in today's game. While Derrick Rose was the leader of the Chicago Bulls for the first few years of Butler's career, it could be argued that Butler has since become the main leader of the Bulls when Rose unfortunately came down with a series of tough injuries.

Once overlooked in the NBA Draft, as Butler was drafted with the 30th overall pick in 2011, Butler has proven all the scouts wrong on their initial assessments of his abilities, as Butler had demonstrated a high degree of athleticism, basketball intelligence, and influence over games. It will be interesting to watch as Jimmy Butler continues to develop his basketball career, what accomplishments he will be able to achieve.

Here is a preview of what is inside this book:

Early Life and Childhood College Years (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior Year) Jimmy Butler's NBA Career (through halfway of the 2015-2016 season) Butler's Personal Life Jimmy Butler's Impact on Basketball Butler's Legacy and Future

An excerpt from the book:

Finding the true road to success usually comes with a few bumps along the road. Those can include having to deal with a period of not having a permanent home and trying to find places to stay on a nightly basis. Or having your family kick you out of the home and forcing you to rely on yourself. But sometimes, rewards await those who persevere, and Jimmy Butler is a perfect example of that.

The thing about Jimmy Butler is that he has started to become one of the many stars of the National Basketball Association. His debut didn’t carry the same weight as some of his peers who came straight out of high school, or after just one season in college basketball. In fact, Butler played his freshman year at a junior college and then three years at Marquette University, where he finished his studies in communication studies.

He rarely played at first, at least before others above him were injured. Then he became accustomed to the difficulty of playing in the NBA, and now he averages more than 20 points per game with playoff contenders, the Chicago Bulls. He hasn’t won any championships, Most Valuable Player nominations, or any scoring titles like other superstar players who became synonymous with the franchise – like a certain “Airness” out of North Carolina.

And yet he continues to get better. Consider it the fruits of labor of someone who didn’t want to fail. Maybe those fruits were planted by seeds from someone who wanted to not let his rough childhood define who he was; a young teenager who became homeless because his mom couldn’t stand to look at him. Fans know him as the member of the Chicago Bulls who is more than willing to play every second of the game – including overtime – just to help the team get another win, no matter if they are playing in the season-opener against the worst team in the league, or in a game against the defending NBA champions.
