Humans are creatures of habit, but Jimmy Butler may have taken things too far in an effort to switch his lifestyle.
After being picked 30th overall, Jimmy Butler has surpassed everyone's expectations on how good of an NBA player he would be. Despite being only a four year pro, Butler has had back-to-back spots on the All-Defensive second team, a 2015 NBA All-Star berth and last season's Most Improved Player award. He also signed a five-year, $90 million deal this offseason.
While many would soak in the success, Butler does everything he can to stay grounded, and I mean everything.
From Bryan Smith in Chicago Magazine:

"Still, he loathes reliving the past -- so much so that he has removed the rearview mirror on his car (yes, really) as a symbolic reminder to never look back."

While I appreciate the effort from Butler, removing an essential car component might not be the best way to go about this. Hopefully a mentor explains to him the importance of the mirror in his car.
@mchlyang he'd still probably play more games than Derrick Rose
I hope I never come across him on the road.
Hey as long as Jimmy Buckets keeps up the high-level play on the court I'm fine with it.
@KyleBerke HAHAHAHAHA so true.......oh DRose.....when's he ever going to have an injury-free season!
@karencorchado That's what I was thinking lol
