You love it when a young guy who was at the end of the bench, biding his time, improving, finally gets his shot and the aim is true. Never mind that Rookie/Soph game snub, Jimmy Butler is for real. Last night in a road win at Milwaukee, 18 points, 5 boards and defense worthy of his head coach’s reputation.
Butler has proven to be an unexpected asset for Chicago who despite the Derrick Rose injury and costly free agent losses may still be the second best team in the East.
Speaking about Rose, the captain will accept your contact now. Spring is near.
