Luke Bryan Tests Basketball Skills Against Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler [Watch]
A lot of country singers try to stay in shape when they’re on the road, but not all of them can say they get a workout in with an NBA player. Luke Bryan got the opportunity to try his hand against Chicago Bulls player Jimmy Butler while on a tour stop in West Palm Beach, Fl., and let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.
Butler is apparently a fan of country music and attended Bryan’s Tampa show Sept. 18, so the guys got in touch and planned to play a friendly game of hoops the following day in West Palm Beach. Bryan and his crew looked a little, well, unimpressive compared to Butler and his friends, but they were determined to put up a good showing. Luckily, Butler was gracious, but it didn’t stop him from sinking a few fade-aways and dunking a time or two.
After a couple of slightly embarrassing blunders, Bryan asked the camera man to “edit that,” but of course, fans got to see the good, bad, and the ugly.
“I think physically, I match up,” Bryan joked in the behind-the-scenes video, standing next to Butler. He pointed to his stomach and explained, “beer,” comparing it to Butler’s abs, before Butler interjected “I have a six-pack, too!"
It wasn’t the best display of athletic prowess, but the boys put up a good fight against the pro, including “Black Mike,” one of Bryan’s crewmates, even blocking Butler’s dunk in a particularly memorable moment.
