Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler wants to be a big rock star this summer after being invited by a certain rock band to join their tour.
Nickelback, a popular rock band from the early 2000s, found out that Butler is quite a fan after singing along to their discography in the locker room after the game, and they think he should sing with them at one of their shows.
The team’s Twitter account wrote to Butler on Friday inviting him.

“It’s not Jimmy…sorry to say!” @JimmyButler we’re going on tour this summer hit us up if you want to come sing live,” the account wrote.
Nickelback was aware of a report that Butler was singing Nickelback songs as “punishment” after the team’s March 11 overtime loss against the Orlando Magic. ESPN reported that Butler didn’t miss a word of the songs.

And the Heat seemed to turn on a bit after Butler’s locker room performance as Miami won both of its games.
The first was a 119-115 win over the Utah Jazz, where Butler led the Heat with 24 points, eight rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes. What followed was a high-scoring win over the Memphis Grizzlies, in which Butler dropped 23 points with eight rebounds and six assists.

The Heat’s streak ended last Saturday after falling to the Chicago Bulls, but they are still the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference, which would put them in a play-in tournament with the Atlanta Hawks. That will start on April 11.

Heat’s social media team also got involved with Nickelback references in their work, using the band’s famous music video for their hit song, “Photograph,” and writing “#Winning” on a photo of lead singer Chad Kroeger. .
Nickelback will hit the road on June 12th on their “Get Rollin'” tour, which will stop in 38 cities across North America.

Perhaps Butler’s talent will be on display at one of those spots. Until then, though, the Heat will focus on a possible NBA playoff run to finish the regular season strong.
