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

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.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.
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.
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.
