The classic "Like Mike" Gatorade commercial turned 25 this summer.
Jimmy Butler and DeAndre Jordan put their own spin on it here at the Rio Games. But they don't wanna be like Mike. They're aspiring to Team USA women's stars Sue Bird and Elena Delle Donne.

Butler, one of the best two-way perimeter players in the NBA, said she wants to be like Bird, the dynamic guard from Connecticut. Jordan, a first-team All-NBA center last year, chose Delle Donne, the versatile forward who can score from the perimeter and the paint.
Butler: "You don't got her type of game."
Jordan: "But I wanna be like that."
Butler: "But you don't fit her game at all. I could actually be Sue."
Jordan: "But you don't pass."
Touche, DeAndre. Touche.
