Every father wants the best for their daughter whether that's in school or in sports, but very few dads can deliver like Mark Wahlberg just did with his daughter's new basketball coach.

There aren't many better options to coach your nine-year-old daughter than a four-time All-Star NBA player. Say what you want about Jimmy Butler, but he's exceptionally good at basketball.

According to Wahlberg, his daughter wanted to learn how to play basketball so he enlisted the help of the self-proclaimed "best coach ever."

But if you're familiar with the close friendship that Butler and Wahlberg share then this probably doesn't come as too much of a surprise. Earlier this year Butler even talked about how his "best friend" is actually Wahlberg's daughter Gracie.

Butler and Wahlberg have been friends for years now so this isn't really hiring an NBA player as much as calling up a friend to come over and help out. Maybe next Wahlberg will try and recruit Butler to join his favorite team, the Celtics.
