Jimmy Butler's game on the basketball court is among the 10-15 best in the NBA. His outdoor game, however, is horrible – and we're not talking about outdoor basketball. 

In a special feature with ESPN, Butler talked basketball while adjusting to life in Minnesota. He went canoeing, made a campfire and set up a tent. These are some of the great quotes Butler gives during the five minute video. 

  • "I can't swim." 
  • "This is not happening right now." 
  • "This water is cold." 

He also lets out a childish scream as he falls out of the canoe (2:25 mark of the video).
