For this type of exhibition game, Charles team is very very bad.... I hope for the fans sake they force a trade with either Lilard or Kyrie going to to Charles team.

I'm really mad Isaiah Thomas and Rubio got selected as wild cards over Jimmy . This kid has been playing 21 mins a game and around 28 since Deng was hurt and has been producing . Kid deserves to be there in his 2nd season . He has shown improvement .

What's the point of getting mad about it. He's been playing solid for a couple weeks, these dudes have proven it for at least all this season. The only player I could see him being selected over was Thomas, and he didn't, so chill ight.

A couple weeks ? You obviously don't watch bulls games kid has been nice all season ? All season Rubio just got put in based off his name . There are a couple of Players Jimmy could have taken . But it's ok I just felt Jimmy should have got some respect . Not many know about this kid and its sad .

Chucks team has got this. Kyrie won't play much since he's in the all-star team.

Chucks team is deep and has more than just jump shooters. Shaqs team will probably just launch the most three pointers ever.

No need to take it out on Rubio who yes averages a point less than Butler this year but dishes 5 more assists.

He got there because he's an awesome player who in 20 games of limited minutes and struggles trusting his knee and dealing with overcompensation injuries still has had a better season than Butler (as nice and surprising as he has been).

I don't get why so many people think Shaq's team is better just because of Lillard and Irving (who may or may not play much). Barkley has Davis and Rubio (the ROY runner-ups) with Beal, Leonard and Faried all sounding like great options for Rubio to feed in the corners and at the rim.

Nicholson has gotten inconsistent minutes which is a knock against him. But he's been better than Butler and Jonas...and whoever else you want to say was more deserving too. Unless you think someone else should have made it over him because of minutes, then there's really no argument.

EDIT: Add Copeland to that list.

You seem annoyed ? I just would like the world to see what we see in the kid . If it Shump was playing all season and didn't make it I'm sure some knick fans would be upset . So as I fan if I think my player deserve to be at a showcase that's showing off talented rookies and sophomores I have the right to voice it . But it's whatever .

Disagree Butler is a key player in our rotation and has been a key to us winning this season . I don't think Nicholson is having a better season , he would if be was getting mins but he isn't so I don't see how he is . Jimmy has had a winning impact on the Bulls team . But to agree to disagree .

no, it's the fact that every single bulls fan is whining about him getting "snubbed" for this game. you guys are more upset about it than he is, i'm sure. i honestly could care less if novak wasn't in the 3 point contest, or james white was in the dunk contest. wouldn't bother me one bit. it's the all star weekend, and it means absolutely nothing to the players participating in it. all players care about is making the all-star team because it's a recognition of their play this season. if butler is as good as bulls fans say he is, then he should make the team in a few years right? stop worrying about him not getting into the rookies-sophomores game.. it's not the end of the world.

A) Local beat writer said that a rookie was going to be picked to replace Drummond, so there's that.
B) Nicholson has been better. You won't convince me otherwise. I do get that Butler is playing a pivotal role on a contending team, and that does matter, but Nicholson is a better scorer, rebounder, is way more efficient and has statistically been a really good defender too.


And we've seen how good he's been with big minutes. Check the last 5 games. Check his early January play. Stud.

Minute-rated, I'd argue only Drummond, AD, Lillard and Henson have been better rookies. He's gonna get big minutes now too.


It's probably all just splitting hairs. A lot of these guys have been playing at very similar levels.

The only reason why I honestly wanted this kid there was to preform in front of his hometown , the kid been thru a lot. Being abandoned by his mother and what not. Even though the kid won't come out and say it , him playing in front of his hometown on one of the biggest events in the NBA and having that feeling and saying to yourself " look I made it thru all of it " would mean somewhat to a person . The kid is a hard worker and plays balls to the wall and earned respect from some players already . I just think he worked hard and his story was my reason for having him in .

honestly, i bet you 60% of NBA players have similar stories to him so he's not any different. think of all the professional athletes that were adopted and grew up without parents. it's not that uncommon.

Bulls fan here. Couldn't care less that he didn't get picked for the Rising Stars team, and don't think he got snubbed. No need to make it out to be something it isn't. It's only been one poster complaining about JB, since the recent announcement of Drummond's replacement and what not.
