Miami Heat stars Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo collaborate with Hollywood superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the actor’s upcoming movie Jungle Cruise.
The Miami Heat had a disappointing end to their 2020-21 NBA season. The Miami team was swept by the Milwaukee Bucks 4-0 in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
Butler and Adebayo, who were great in the 2020 Orlando Bubble, failed to replicate their success this year. Jimmy Buckets shot a dismal 29.7% from the field and 26.7% from the 3-point line.
However, the stars have grown thicker with time, having found mutual interests. The two All-stars have been enjoying their off-season at the beautiful south beach.
Recently Butler and Adebayo were invited by Hollywood megastar Dwayne Johnson on a cruise, which didn’t sound like a good plan.
Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock shares a special bond with the city of Miami. The Rock played college football for the University of Miami and even won a national championship with them in 1991.
The megastar aspired to have a career in professional football and even entered the 1995 NFL Draft but unfortunately went undrafted.
In a recent promotional for his film Jungle Cruise, The Rock tricked the All-Star duo from Miami to join him on a cruise that didn’t look like a fun ride.

Butler and Adebayo are seen dressed in floral shirts giving us a glimpse of the South Beach vibe. They face-time Dwayne Johnson, who is at his funny best in the video.
The Rock warns them about the fact that this won’t be their typical cruise, but Adebayo is in no mood to give up on his beach vibe.
What happens next gives us a taste of the upcoming movie Jungle Cruise.
