    How, exactly, do you feel you 'called it first'? And what a ridiculous thing to try to claim.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

I dunno if Butler will start, but I think he gets the 30+ minutes if he keeps playing his way into the lineup. And there's really no reason he can't post up 2's, he's shown he's perfectly willing to and can do it pretty decently.
    Great lineup to go up against a small ball Heat lineup. The emergence of Jimmy gives us so many rotational possibilities it's insane. Plus the defensive lineup to finish games is damn near impenetrable.

    Our defense has been absolutely incredible lately, we should be number 1 in the league again in no time if we keep it up...

    How did I not call it first? Jst read everyone else's posts. I'm not exactly saying whats "popular" right now, but it's my stance. Jimmy Butler is more athletic, Jst as efficient , & defends better than every option we have at SG. He is the most solid option that we have at SG as far as both ends of the ball. He has proven he can drop 12-15pts without even really looking for his shot. He is out performing every other option we have at SG, which is why I think when Rose gets back, Thibs will have to notice Jimmy's chemistry w/ Rose, and the rest of our starters. He's a great passer, defender, slasher, rebounder & Ft shooter. On top of that he can dribble & create his own shot.

    Sometimes you gotta look past the traditional view of things and just notice who's playing better, & Jimmy Butler is just as efficient in 20mins as R. Hamilton in 31mins, so Why do we need Rip if Jimmy is giving us his numbers, plus more. (& we would be locking down every opposing teams PG, SG, & SF w/ Rose, Butler, & Deng. (Do you see how fast that potential fast break is??? SCARY.

    So what happens if Jimmy doesn't start for another 1-2 years? Should we still give you credit for calling it first?

    That doesn't explain how you "saw it first" just that you saw the same things literally everyone else here has been raving about for weeks.

    So again, how did "you see it first" and again, my second question, "Who ****ing cares?" Oh, and a third one, "What proof is there that you even did call it first?"

    Those are the real pressing questions here. Continue sucking your own dick though. We're all impressed. Are you going to lick your elbow for us next?


    PS: It's been my stance since like, 3+ weeks ago. The only reason I mention is because I'm 99.9999% positive I said something before you and I know at least one person said something even before I did, and I know it wasn't you because it's someone here of whose opinion I think extremely highly. And it seems to actually be the popular one.

    Obviously u care , because u took the time to type all that... But to answer your question " I haven't seen or heard anyone else say that Jimmy "will be our starting SG "this season.. After Rose returns. I didn't say one day.. Or 3 yrs from now, I said this yr. You mighta thought it, but u weren't brave enough to trust your own opinion. It's ok... A lot of people have that issue on this forum.

    Should have said "I'm calling it now... etc" and it wouldn't have been taking so literally. Don't you see we have a nut running around these days saying he saw Jimmy before he was born?

    The only thing that I "care" about, is people being annoying as **** and saying they "saw" something before other people. Here is a post I made, for example, on January 10th:

    Honestly, I think he's really, really good. It kind of reminds me of Arron Afflalo. Come in as a nice defensive specialist who can put up a few points. Then add things until you're a damn good player. I think that's kind of what we're looking at, only way better.

    Unfortunately he'll never space the floor the way an Afflalo can, but I think he's a better playmaker, is better on the boards and he has a knack for getting to the line. Right now he's obviously not there, but like Afflalo did I think he'll just keep adding to his game until he is a damn ****ing fine player.
    Is me saying he's going to be an Afflalo type player "only way better" not enough? There's now some prize for saying, "He will be our starting SG THIS YEAR!!)($(!*!)$(*!"? No, there's not, and if you read the "updated opinions on Jimmy" thread, it's clear that everyone saw the same things as you and trying to act like an armchair scouting genius is super annoying, especially with the way people are trying to jump on this obnoxious one of being the "first one to cal Jimmy being awesome!" It's not only ridiculous, but pointless. Nobody is "not excited" by what he's shown, even Topsy is, I'm sure, super excited, but even for all my excitement there is still a need to have some amount of 'tempered"-ness to it.

    And seeing people claim they called something first is just absurd. You know who called it? Rose, Jo, Lu, Thibs and GarPax. Also, Pippen.

    None of us called **** first.

    God bless America.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    Teague is going to be a starter quality player and would be a star if playing on other teams in the future. I call it

    Nobody exactly knows what the player would turn out to be, right after they got drafted. Though FO see something in them that "suits" their plan.

    Teague is special with his speed. But nobody knows what will he turn out 2 to 3 years from now.

    If Jimmy Butler develops a consistant 3 point shot then we may of found our 2 guard! He has the defense and he can get some boards and plays excellent in the paint, dont let him get that jumper going!!!

    I don't get the point of the **** wagging when tonight's game was a perfect example of Jimmy's career with Chicago going forward (assuming a healthy roster). He will come off the bench and play 25-30 minutes tapered with Deng and other guards.



    Can he start? Sure, but why would he? He's still the most effective as a winger and every minute of rest for Deng is a godsend.

    The EARLIEST that could change is against the Heat in the playoffs IF the Bulls decide to stop everyone except Lebron yet even then KH12 and Rip can likely cover Wade just fine.
