On Monday, Jimmy Butler told Smart he needs to watch himself because he is not about that life.
“He’s a great actor, acting tough. It’s what he does. I don’t think he’s about that. I’m the wrong guy to get in my face. He needa take it somewhere else because I’m not for that.
That’s the first, the last time too. We not gonna sit here and get each other’s faces. He’s not about that life, calm it down.”
After Tuesday’s practice, Smart was asked about those comments from Butler and he stated he simply laughed at them.
“I laugh at that,” Smart began. “Man, this is about Celtics versus Bulls, not Marcus Smart versus Jimmy. I ain’t gotta sit here and say this or that, I’m this, I’m that. … My actions speak louder than words.
“It ain’t hard to find me. Right now I’m focusing on my teammates.”
“Like I said before, I ain’t gotta talk about what I am, I can show you,” Smart said. “I can show you but I’m not gonna tell you … You heard him. He said, ‘I don’t think Marcus Smart is about that life.’ Last time I checked, if you’re gonna say someone ain’t about that life, you should know, right?”
