People seem to live a good conspiracy. Reddit seems to be that website that has scores of folks who think about the weirdest things that end up going viral.
Jimmy Butler was one of the biggest free agents this offseason and was said to have turned down almost $50 million and signed a deal with the Miami Heat instead of taking his talents back to the Philadelphia 76ers.
This is the first time in Butler’s career that he got to decide where he wanted to go and it didn’t take long for a crazy conspiracy theory to come out.
A random fan on Reddit found some similarities between Butler’s destinations and those of Andrew Cunanan, the guy who infamously gunned down designer Gianni Versace as well as many other people.
“Am I weird for noticing that Butler is just going to the places where the dude who killed Versace committed his murders?,” one Redditor asked. “From watching the American Crime Story show, he killed two people in Minnesota, one in Chicago, one near Philly and then Versace in Miami, just a weird coincidence I guess.”
Those murders were committed in 1997, and of course, Butler hitting all the cities that the serial murder was at is pure coincidence.
This is the type of things NBA fans are doing as we all wait for Kawhi Leonard to make his final decision.
