Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat and Druski, a well-known comedian and internet sensation, collaborated on a new ad for the Google Pixel 8, which went on sale on October 4, 2023, with a starting price of $699.
Butler plays basketball for the first time for ɀruskŹ as the commercial “Project Buιlt ̀ιfferent: Mаkιng tɺe League” opens.

Next, Druski gets a call that Google Pixel 8 flags as spam right away. You can watch both of them in action in the phone commercial embedded below.
Over the summer, rumors that Damian Lillard might be traded circulated. Against the wishes of the Portland Trail Blazers, Lillard requested a trade because he was fed up with losing after playing for the team for 11 seasons. When he first asked the Heat for a trade, the Blazers made an effort to comply.
Miami sent Portland to the Milwaukee Bucks because they didn’t have enough trade bait to pique his interest. Although the move wasn’t awful, it didn’t give Lillarad what he desired.
The seven-time All-Star recently acknowledged that he had communication with Jimmy Butler the entire time. Following Lillard’s trade to the Bucks, the Miami star and Lillard had a chance to speak.
Lillard said, “We’ve always been in contact with each other.” “I said to myself at first, ‘I want to go to Miami,'” I acknowledged. He was a major factor in that. Nothing of the sort happened. I’ve got here. That won’t, however, alter our friendship. In the same way, yes. In other words, it never happened. It was out of my control and his.
There is a chance that the Bucks and Trail Blazers will face off in the postseason. If Butler and Lillard got together, it would be fascinating to watch.
