Dwyane Wade sounded like a proud older brother while discussing Jimmy Butler’s performance after Saturday night’s win over the Washington Wizards.

“He’s doing what me and (Rajon) Rondo came here for him to do,” Wade said. “And that’s to really turn into a premiere, premiere player in this league above just an All-Star.”
