Dennis Schroder’s Dirty Play On Jimmy Butler Goes Viral (Video)

Dennis Schroder’s Dirty Play On Jimmy Butler Goes Viral (Video)

The final preseason game between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat was highlighted by an intense personal battle featuring Dennis Schroder and Jimmy Butler.

Thing got off to a chippy start from the jump, as seen in the first quarter when Butler brutally bullied Schroder down low – only for the latter to get called for a blocking foul.

The rivalry would eventually kick into overdrive later in the game on this particular sequence:

In the lead-up to Schroder trying to trip Butler, the latter quite clearly stepped on his foot in a way that didn’t look accidental.

That said, it’s difficult to injure someone else by stepping on their foot. Tripping your opponent, however, can lead to serious issues.

Schroder obviously doesn’t care about public perception, so online backlash from this incident likely won’t impact him too much going forward.

It will be interesting to see if the NBA ultimately reacts to this. Last year one player literally broke another’s wrist during the game and walk away unpunished. That definitely set the tone for some rough play. Will the same happen this season? Time will tell.
