Butler thought he could stop Brown in the end zone.
Jimmy Butler and Antonio Brown are both big personalities in their respective sports so it comes as no surprise that they are actually pretty good friends. Butler delved deeper into his friendship with Brown on the latest episode of Complex's show Hot Ones. One of the funnier stories Butler told on the show involved a football bet he made with Brown. Of course, Brown is a football player while Butler plays basketball, so you would expect Brown to crush Butler at whatever the challenge was. Well, that's exactly what happened.
As the story goes, Brown and Butler were training together, when Butler bet Brown $30K that he could stop his catch from a touchdown pass in the endzone. Brown ended up smoking Butler and the rest was history. Although as Brown joked on Twitter, Butler has yet to pay up.
Considering Butler's contract, we're sure he'll be able to pay Brown back eventually. With Brown's restructured contract with the Oakland Raiders, he probably isn't in a rush to get the money either. After all, they are friends so they know exactly where to find each other.
