Jimmy Butler Biography

Butler was born in Houston on September 14, 1989. His father abandoned the family when Butler was an infant.

By the time he was 13 years old and living in the Houston suburb of Tomball, his mother kicked him out of the house.

As Butler remembered it in a 2011 interview, she told him, “I don’t like the look of you. You gotta go.”

He then bounced between the homes of various friends, staying for a few weeks at a time before moving to another house.

Despite all of this, Butler maintains a close relationship with his parents, saying, “I don’t hold grudges.I still talk to my family. My mom. My father. We love each other. That’s never going to change.”

In a summer basketball league before his senior year at Tomball High School, he was noticed by Jordan Leslie, a freshman football and basketball player at the school, who challenged him to a three-point shooting contest.

The two immediately became friends, and Butler began staying at Leslie’s house. Although his friend’s mother and stepfather, who had six other children between them, were reluctant at first, they took him in within a few months.

Butler would later say, “They accepted me into their family. And it wasn’t because of basketball. She [Michelle Lambert, Leslie’s mother] was just very loving. She just did stuff like that. I couldn’t believe it.”

As a junior at Tomball High, Butler averaged 10 points per game. As a senior and team captain in 2006–07, Butler averaged 19.9 points and 8.7 rebounds per game and was subsequently voted his team’s most valuable player.

Butler was not heavily recruited coming out of high school and chose to attend Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas.
