Knicks fans had their fun with Iman Shumpert. Boston fans had their fun with Avery Bradley. Different between them and Jimmy is that Jimmy is actually legit. All defensive studs, but Jimmy surpasses them. Those guys got overrated by their fanbase, time for Jimmy Buckets to get some love baby. This is his statline today.

48 minutes played, 10-12 FG, 3-3 from 3 point land, 5-6 from the charity stripe, 7 boards, 2 dishes, 2 steals, and 28 points. My man also threw this one down (click butler dunk link). Typical dunk from Jimmy G Buckets.

He is a better defender than Shump and Bradley and can guard the 2 and the 3. Giev my man some love :clap: He hasn't gotten enough recognition yet.

What??? Derozan is a solid defender and Rudy is nice. The raptors will take that step the pacers took last season. You guys just need to ship bargs and maybe Amir Johnson for a lamarcus Aldridge type of player and your a top 6 team out east. But I digress... Jimmy butler is developing into something nice. If he develops a consistent jumper watch out east, that 2 guard we've been coveting isn't too far away

Melo wasn't at his right mind that game. What seperates Melo from Wade and Kobe right now, is not even his dribble. That's mediocore, it's his foot work, how he's using the post moves in his face up game to create that space. Kobe has that but he's older now and not on a roll like Melo. On top of that no one boxes him out when he misses so he's now going more after the boards to get his points. Which I actually like. He right now playing like Sir Charles w/ crazy foot work but way better shooter.

Yea I can agree with that, his defense is more attributed to his long arms and freakishly large hands, combined with lateral quickness. It's a defensive style that's a little different than how Shump/Bradley defend. Frankly, I'm more impressed with the evolution of his offensive game this year.

I just remember last year there was a lot of talk about the 3 of these guys, young guys who can defend really well, which is not something that is seen too often (at least right away) from wings who come in the league in recent years.

He is alright, but as some have mentioned, overrated by his fan base.

Remember we are talking about a guy averaging 8 points and 4 rebounds in borderline starters minutes. Yes, he is a good defender, but if Tony Allen has similar minutes and numbers and (IMO) better defensive impact and doesn't get dedicated NBA Forum threads then I don't see what is so special about Butler.

Definitely any talk of if the Bulls should trade Deng is way premature.

The reason Bulls fans are excited is because he's averaging nearly 14 and 7 as a starter (I think close to 25-30 games now) and is effective playing alongside Deng. You all know we have a huge weakness at the 2G spot so it will be fun to see how Thibs divides up the minutes when Rose returns.

Other than that it is very premature but I guess if everyone had to listen to the Shumpert ridiculousness this will feel like nothing.

Jimmy can be a good sixth man, but they can't get rid of Deng just yet. Deng does one of the best jobs vs LeBron. Bulls should stand pat and try to draft Tim Hardaway Jr., so Derrick can play with his future cousin-in-law.

He actually averages 15 points and 7 rebounds when starting. He also shoots 46% and 42% from the 3 when starting. Has been shooting 45% from 3 point land since the all start break.

Jimmy is a fun guy to watch. He isn't the flashiest of players but he can make the occasional jaw dropping highlight reel play.

His offensive game is still raw but he can knock down the mid-range jumper and can take it to the hoop if needed. His size poses match-up problems for other 2 guards. He is a very good defender and has some above average athleticism.

Right now he is trending to be an above average NBA player but he isn't there quite yet. The good news about Jimmy is that he is an extremely hard worker and will continue to make great strides during the off-season. He is very humble about is play but is hungry to get better and wants more consistent minutes.

I would like to see a platoon of Butler and Belinelli at the 2 guard position for the Bulls next season. I like what Marco can bring offensively and what Butler can provide on the other side of the ball.

Butler is another reason why the Bulls scouting is one of the best when it comes to drafting. He was a late round pick but is showing that he has more value than expected based off of his overall draft position (see Asik, Gibson, Rose vs. Beasley, and Mirotic {if you place any stock into him} for other examples).

Butler s a good young player would love to have him. Why you cant just say that without insulting Bradley and Shumpert as garbage is what confuses me.

Iman Shumpert is also a very good young player. Finally 100% back rom injury he also had one pretty good stat line last night. The difference is that the Bulls are counting on Butler to score because their offense is awful. Iman is not counted on to score until 5 other options are exhausted. Put Shumps or Bradley on the Bulls instead of butler and both would match his stats. Why cant all 3 be good? Ridiculous.

Bragging that "Melo will drop 40" and "to stick a fork in his defensive game" is not the same as saying "I prefer Shumpert over Butler".

I won't compare Jimmy with others but he is a very good young developing player.

he has been simply amazing since the all-star break playing starting role. He has also improved his 3pt shot tremendously (shooting about 46% from 3pt land since all-star break).

His defense is what is his bread and butter (amazing defender and guards 2 and 3 soooooooo well). But now that his offensive game has been taking off, that's just a bonus for Bulls.

I would say Bulls should make him a permanent starting SG that they have been looking for. They already had it in their team all along but didn't know it.

He will open up a lot of eyes in the playoffs. Just watch him play - that;s all I gotta say.

He actually averages 15 points and 7 rebounds when starting. He also shoots 46% and 42% from the 3 when starting. Has been shooting 45% from 3 point land since the all start break.

And how many starts is that? 15?

Anything less than a half season sample isn't a definitive guide to what a player's true ability is. I can post 25 game post all star starter splits from past seasons for guys like Marcus Thornton or Carl Landry that could make them look way more legit than they really were and you saw that in their next season. The same really might happen with Butler. I mean just using this season alone picking a random player, Gerald Henderson went from a 12 PPG scorer to a 19/4/3 guy on solid percentages.

Yes, I get that he is young, and his defense is definitely sustainable. Everything else is up in the air as far as I see it.

When the Bulls are missing 3-4 key players per game these days, and/or guys coming back from injuries- that's an unfortunate result. But, Bulls usually rise to the top teams and at times play down to poorer competition. Really frustrating at times...

I'll admit I was impressed. I don't see him ever being an all-star but he is a phenomenal athlete and can lock it down on D. His ball handling could definitely use some work.

Yeah every team has games like that. Remember when the Wizards had like 4 wins and but had wins over the Heat and Thunder? I'm really impressed that the Bulls are still a mid-seed without Rose for the entire season. Great job.

I think it's his confidence, or lack-of confidence. The few occasions he's forced to bring the ball up, he doesn't look very happy to be doing this and is hesitant/looking for someone to pass the ball too.
