Jimmy Butler's attitude toward Fred Hoiberg made players 'uncomfortable'

Jimmy Butler's attitude toward Fred Hoiberg made players 'uncomfortable'”

When a team trades a player like Jimmy Butler - a perennial All-Star and a borderline top-10 player in the National Basketball Association, who finished third in the league last season in win shares - they are expected to land both young, controllable assets and high picks. The Bulls better hope they hit on at least one, otherwise they're looking at a potential sixth man who can score and not provide much else, along with a rotation player, respectively. "We all see where being the so-called face of the Chicago Bulls got me". I truly struggle with the words because you've been so much more than just my home for the last 6 years, you've been my life!

If you thought the Minnesota Timberwolves were done with a draft night trade for All-Star forward Jimmy Butler, you're sorely mistaken.

In return for Butler, the Bulls received the seventh pick in the draft - which turned into stretch-5 Lauri Markkanen from Arizona - along with 2016 No. 5 overall pick Kris Dunn and electric guard Zach LaVine, the former UCLA product who is recovering from a torn ACL.

"We all know how I feel about him, and what he's done for me and my career", Butler said.

But Butler's accomplishments as a Bull shouldn't be overlooked. Fork up the $3 million needed to buy out Rondo or pony up what you've got to for Wade, since you gave them those options in the first place.

"I think back to when I first had the opportunity to coach him was the lockout year". They did so much for me, and gave me an opportunity to be as great as I could make myself. You've embraced me like a son and pushed me to get better every day, every season.

Inconsistencies in organizational structure combined with multiple coaching changes and an inability to develop the right young players kept the Kings on the dais of the draft lottery every April.

Soon after, the three-time All-Star recorded his message, which included all the kinds of things that Wolves fans want to hear right now. The two players would have been fine, but again, I have no idea what the Wolves' draft strategy was going to be.

While the Jimmy Butler trade has been official for a few days now, the media is still reacting to what the news means for the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, they did accomplish the goal of ostensibly creating a new core in one night. "If we can do that to the best of our abilities we're going to win some games".

Maybe that's why the two were so successful together in Chicago, with the duo reaching the playoffs in all four years and Butler winning the NBA's Most Improved Player of the Year Award in 2014-15, Thibodeau's final season in Chicago. It's okay, Jimmy, we didn't understand the trade on the Bulls' part, either.

And just as Hoiberg has been dealt an uneven hand, Butler wasn't given the type of roster that would accurately judge how he could flourish as a leader, max player and face of the franchise - and probably had less time to show one way or the other relative to his coach.

By giving away Butler, the Bulls are conceding that they are no longer just retooling.
