Chicago Bulls' 30th overall pick at the 2011 NBA Draft, Jimmy Butler, is a renowned NBA small forward/shooting guard.

Ahead of the 2018/2019 season, the Houston-Texas native joined Philadelphia 76ers from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Playing only one campaign with Timberwolves, he got featured in 59 games while averaging 22.2 points/match during the regular season & 15.8 points/match in the playoffs.

Back in 2014/15 NBA season, the former Bulls player Jimmy enjoyed a breakout campaign. That year, he earned his first-ever All-Star nod and also got named NBA's Most Improved Player Award.

As it usually does, his growing popularity among fans was met with a hike in interest in his romantic life.

Dating Life - Wife Prospects & Girlfriends

At the height of his NBA career, Jimmy's name got linked with former college athlete Charmaine Piula. The alleged romance was over before it became a thing.

After Charmaine, rumors swirled that Jimmy began dating Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell. Paparazzi snapped the two enjoying lunch in Beverly Hills in May 2016. The NBA athlete once called Shay his celebrity crush.

Height & Weight; High School

Gifted with six feet and eight inches (2.03 m) height & 102 kgs weight, Jimmy boasts an immaculate physique. No wonder, women of all creed and color love him.

Before the NBA star earned a title of a serial heartbreaker, he used his physicality to break down rival players as a high school athlete. Playing for Tomball High School, he terrorized opponents' defense.

Registering 10 points/game as a junior, Jimmy upped the ante in his senior year as his stats doubled. He was the team's captain in his final year with Tomball High School.

Net Worth

Fresh off the high school, Jimmy enrolled at Marquette University on an athletic scholarship. As a senior, he showcased remarkable improvement. Chicago Bulls took notice and drafted him.

At Philadelphia 76ers, he earns an estimated salary of $18 million under his 5-year-long contract. In turn, the income should further assert his $25 million+ net worth.

Background - Family, Age & Birthday

Jimmy's family background is every bit tragic, as it is inspiring.

Raised in a single parent household, the charismatic NBA shooting guard/small forward grew up impoverished. As an infant, he watched his father walk out of his life.

When Jimmy turned 13, his mother Londa Butler kicked him out because she didn't like the look of him. For years, he couch-surfed at friends' places before finding a permanent home with Denver Broncos player Jordan Leslie's family.

Born in 1989, 29-year-old Jimmy celebrates his birthday on 14th September every year.
