Butler posts heartfelt thank-you letter to Chicago Bulls

Butler posts heartfelt thank-you letter to Chicago Bulls”

The bond between Thibodeau and Butler is born out of mutual respect. But what can they say? It is true that, aside from the luck of the Derrick Rose pick, they have not had particularly high draft picks to work with since the Bill Cartwright era.

"You could certainly create an anecdotal case that he is the difference between not making the playoffs and making the playoffs", Windhorst said. You're not afraid to tell them the truth. "I like Jimmy's fiber, and I think he's going to help a lot". I just feel like I didn't know when it was going to happen. "And he wants to win big". The team is looking at building a team of young players that can be molded into a championship franchise using Fred Hoiberg's system. Thibodeau could be credited with transforming Butler from role player and a "Sixth Man", to out and out star. Butler was the NBA's Most Improved Player in 2015, and his game took great strides with the Bulls. That's his. There's no right in me to tell him what he can or cannot do. They would also need to consider cutting ties with other players in order to make room, including the option to move Gorgui Dieng due to the fact that he will be taking up $14 million after signing a contract extension.

Now they're together again, trying to lead a franchise that has not made the playoffs since 2004. Amick said that was "pretty shocking", considering Thibodeau's reputation for defensive prowess, but Butler is one of the league's better two-way players who knows what Thibodeau wants to do defensively and can limit the opposing team's best perimeter scorer. "Jimmy deserves all the credit in the world and more than people can realize, but he's a living example (that) the things that Tom talks about on a daily basis can be successful if done and applied in the right way". "I am who I am, and I'm not ideal in any shape or form".

In his first public comments about the deal, it doesn't look like Butler is a huge fan of the way things went down. Thibodeau said Butler "found his way" in the National Basketball Association thanks to his practice, preparation and drive. I can't say that it caught me off guard.

"I have been honest with Jimmy Butler every time I have ever spoken to him". Neither is likely to get anywhere close to Butler's level. "Now that I'm thinking about it, as I'm saying it out loud, that's who he is".

Butler vented some frustration about how the organization handled the move, but it's clear his passion for the city that watched him grow as a 21-year-old rookie to a three-time All-Star still holds strong.

"I completely disagree when someone takes a shot like that", Bulls executive vice president John Paxson said, referring to the tweet, at a press conference.

The Bulls were calling the move a rebuild, but there are strong indications that this was a front office that also didn't want to have to eventually pay Butler almost $246 million had he qualified for the super-max extension. During my teenage years, I was much more likely to practice Michael Jordan's signature turn around fade-away, complete with my tongue hanging out than to apply makeup or paint my nails.
