with the Argentine flag confirmed the least expected news:

Jimmy Butler

, one of the stars of the NBA, is visiting Buenos Aires and has revolutionized the social networks of Argentines who are looking for him in downtown Buenos Aires to find him. .

Thanks to Twitter and Instagram users, it was possible to see that the Miami Heat basketball player

also toured the vicinity of the Obelisk

, where he was surrounded by about seven people who would be part of the group that accompanied him to Argentina.

Dressed in a set of blue shorts and jacket with white details, the figure of the Heat

took advantage of the recess in the best league in the world for the All Star Game

to visit the southernmost country of the continent.

As it became known, Butler, a fan of Lionel Messi and soccer, ruled out the invitation to the all-star game to be held this weekend at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, precisely because he had already organized this trip to Buenos Aires.

Although his activity keeps him very busy, the 48 million dollars he earns a year - which places him in the 26th position of Forbes Magazine among the highest paid athletes in the world - allows him to indulge in various tastes.

For example, last year he played a game of street basketball in Parque La Carolina in Quito, Ecuador, and visits cities known for their good coffee.

Will Buenos Aires be a stopover on those trips?

His gesture with a small Argentine fan

At the end of January, Jimmy Butler made headlines in Argentina for the gesture he had with Felipe, a 12-year-old boy who arrived at the Miami Dade Arena with his sister Zoe and the illusion of meeting the figure of the Miami Heat against the Boston Celtics.

His reaction upon learning that he could not see his idol because he was injured went viral and reached the guard, who made a great gesture.

With a large sign that read "Dear Jimmy Butler. I traveled 4,405 kilometers to see you. Can we have a photo or a coffee?", Felipe was waiting anxiously for the start of the game, in one of the stands of the stadium, when Zoe told him that Butler would not take the field.

The boy dropped the paper and held his head, showing his great disappointment.

The entire sequence was captured by television cameras and was shared on social networks by various users.

The brothers' disappointment, however, did not last long.

Because Heat staff invited them onto the field during halftime and presented them with an autographed Butler jersey, a ball also signed by several players, and franchise merchandise.

In addition, they could take a photo with Gabe Vincent, another of the team's figures.

Butler found out what happened and on Monday he fulfilled Felipe's dream.

Because he invited them to the Miami Dade Arena, where the Argentines not only took a picture with the escort, but they were able to chat with him for a while and even give him the light blue and white flag that accompanied them on the trip.

"For Jimmy, from Zoe and Felipe", wrote the brothers, who took an unforgettable memory.
