NBA Players React to Butler's Historic Performance
via: NBA.

Jimmy Butler keeps proving he's the man in South Beach, as he recorded a historic 40-point, 11-rebound, 13-assist triple-double in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Lakers.

The rest of the league noticed history in the making, as Butler became just the third player in Finals history to have a 40-point triple-double, according to research by ESPN Stats & Information, joining Jerry West and LeBron James.

The 31 year-old also became the first player to score 40 points without attempting a 3-pointer since Shaquille O'Neal in 2002.
