Default Jimmy Butler

Can anyone describe this guy's game in a nutshell? I remember he played very well against the Knicks earlier on in the season and he defended Carmelo very well. Just saw that he hasn't played the last 3 games, probably cause of Deng/Korver/Brewer being available. Can he become part of a rotation in the future?

A future Deng with a better looking jumper and less-ugly handles.

"‘Defense is a big part of my game, and I try really hard,’’ Butler said. ‘‘My teammates, they have the confidence in me that I can guard whoever I’m lined up against. I think that’s big, but it’s not just me on defense. It’s me and four other guys, and that makes it a lot easier knowing that the tough matchup I may have on a given night, I have four defenders behind me giving me great help.’’

As the season has gone on, coach Tom Thibodeau has placed more responsibility on Butler. When the Bulls last hosted the New York Knicks on March 12, Butler checked Carmelo Anthony. The task of guarding one of the league’s elite scorers raised Butler’s confidence and also gave him pause to sigh when talking before the Bulls’ final regular-season game against the Knicks on Tuesday.

Jimmy has really impressed me. If he really works on his shot and develops a consistent outside shot while improving his ball-handling some he's going to be a very good player. Could end up being another great steal for us.

Taj was a great late pick. Asik. Mirotic maybe...

Front office has done well in the draft for a while now.

Jimmy Butler will be splitting time at SG and SF this season. I still think its a slight chance that he will become the starting 2guard for the Bulls down the line. I think he could be a Aaron Afflalo for the Bulls. He can shoot the ball and play lock down defense. Plus, it seem like no matter who the Bulls sign they can't get the job done and past guards that have been drafted have either been undersize or couldn't shoot. If Jimmy can build off what he did in the summer league the 2guard problem might be solved.

He put up 20.8ppg, 6.5rbs, and 2.0apg in the Summer League.

35.5MPG, 50%3PT, 43.1%FG, and 87.9FT.

Rip is fragile at times and misses a lot of games at times. If Rip misses some games and Thibs start JB at SG and he can put up these number or close to them, its gone be some problems.

Deng gets paid a lot of money. To pay that to him and to Noah and to Boozer and to Rose...I think they need more.



I would trade Deng. And not just because Butler could probably be the starter soon. But Rose is hurt. The team can still make the playoffs, but the guy is injured. If the concern is they don't even make the playoffs, then they obviously aren't thinking enough of their chances anyway.



I'd make a move. Maybe Deng to Utah for Burks. I don't know if Utah would do that, but they might. And it's worth a shot. Or a package of Boozer and Deng for...someone.


How about Deng for Al Jefferson?

I wouldn't make either of those trades if I were the Bulls.

Deng is the glue of this team, and you can't trade your glue guy until you have another glue guy, regardless of skill and pay. If he was the glue guy, and the team sucked, that's different.

I don't know if Jimmy will ever turn into a starter in this league, but I know he will definitely be a very good bench player.

His defense is already very good. If he can consistently improve on his ball handling and jump shot than he can be a very good player.

I heard jimmy is the first one to practice and last to leave the gym. He showed improvement in the summer league this guy has athleticism defense and offense. He is tall enough to be an sf and has handles to be a sg. This means he is effective guardin sg sf and pg and can pose problems in the post on double teams. He is the bulls highlight real sg that we are and have been looking for. His weakness is he is not wade strength or iq offensively
