Here's why Jimmy Butler chose South Beach over Kemah

The Houston Rockets were heavily pursuing Jimmy Butler and willing to trade several key pieces of the team in order to make room for a third star player.

Now that Butler has decided to join the Miami Heat, many fans are wondering why the Rockets weren't able to get a deal done.

ESPN 97.5's Charlie Pallilo shares his thoughts on why Butler chose the Heat over the Rockets, and discusses if missing out on Butler might actually be a good thing for Houston.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio talks with Chris Simms about the latest information regarding Deshaun Watson and the cases against him. Lawyer Tony Buzbee told Fox 26's Mark Berman that a settlement is not close to happening, and the women that spoke with the NFL did not feel respected.

So what do we make of this? Florio's opinion is that Buzbee is making these comments to put pressure on Deshaun Watson and the NFL, because stirring up this "hornet's nest" will blow back on Watson and the NFL, not Buzbee and his clients. Buzbee must believe that stirring the pot could help nudge the cases toward resolution in a more timely manner.

Finally, Florio spells out how the game is played with lawyers. Meaning, Rusty Hardin and his team are going to make this process as uncomfortable as possible for all the accusers. According to Florio, that's right out of the legal playbook if such a thing existed.

Check out the video to hear Florio's full take on the latest information.
