Miami Heat All-Star Jimmy Butler amusingly reveals how much he made from his ‘Big Face Coffee’ brand in the Orlando bubble last year.
Last season Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat proved to be as one of the best players in the league during Miami’s unexpected run to the NBA Finals. While being in the NBA Bubble in Orlando, Butler also founded a hobby and established himself as an entrepreneur. He founded a brand called ‘Big Face Coffee’ where he sold coffee.
In a recent interview, Jimmy Butler hilariously revealed how much money he had made. “Somewhere between $1 and like $6,000”. This figure seems very insignificant when compared to the $34,379,100 he currently is making this year playing for the Heat.
But, it is worth noting that Butler was handling his brand while playing at an elite level. Clearly, his coffee business did not distract him from leading his team to the NBA Finals.
Jimmy Butler being real 😂 “What did I make? I think I made about, I’m not gonna tell you the exact number. Somewhere in between $1, and like $6,000. Somewhere in between there is about the amount of money I made.”https://t.co/BXQHcJAOTC

Goran Dragic was Jimmy Butler’s number 1 customer, although he never paid
In the same interview, Butler also revealed that Heat point guard, Goran Dragic was his number 1 customer. Butler said that Dragic would never pay for a single coffee. He’d always managed to distract him while ordering for a coffee, thus getting the coffee without paying for it.
Jimmy Butler spoke about how he might expand his coffee business after he retires from the sport for good. Butler now averages 15.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game on the Heat team, who have a 5-7 record in the 2020-2021 season.
It’s going to take a great effort for Miami to get back to the Finals this year. The Bucks have restocked, the Nets now have Kevin Durant back and have traded for James Harden. Boston looks as imperious as it did last year. Clearly, this will be no cakewalk.
