Bulls Jimmy Butler Says He’s Willing To Play 48 Minutes Per Game In Playoffs

The NBA playoffs are just around the corner. Chicago will be without Derrick Rose as we know, which means Jimmy Butler is willing to take on extra responsibility in the postseason. Butler currently ranks fourth in the league in minutes played with 38.2 per game. Last postseason, Butler averaged 40.8 minutes per game through 12 games. That’s a very hefty load of minutes, but that’s...

Jimmy Butler Makes Hustle Play, Sprints Through Crowd To Get Back In Game (Video)

Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler proved his hustle knows no bounds on Sunday afternoon against the New York Knicks. During the first quarter, Butler dove into the stands to save a loose ball to give his team possession.

Chicago Bulls sign Jimmer Fredette

Chicago Bulls sign Jimmer FredetteThe Chicago Bulls made a rather surprising move late last night when they signed free agent guard Jimmer Fredette who had recently been released by the Sacramento Kings. The reason that this move is somewhat surprising to me is Jimmer has not been an overly successful defensive player to this point in his NBA career. That was me putting it as nicely...

VIDEO: Jimmy Butler, Joe Johnson Scrum

Chicago Bulls Basketball– With just under six minutes remaining in the third quarter, Jimmy Butler and Joe Johnson had a bit of an altercation. Both received technical fouls. Although nothing major, it is fun to watch Joe Johnson try to poke Butler’s eye out then play it off like he was the victim.

Chicago Bulls: The greatness of Tom Thibodeau

With Phil Jackson retired there is honestly only one active coach in the NBA that I would rather have coaching the Chicago Bulls than Tom Thibodeau, the San Antonio Spurs’ Greg Popovich. I had to debate for a good while as to whether or not I would rather have the Los Angeles Clippers’ Doc Rivers than Thibodeau. In the end coach “Thibs” was the one left standing. Since joining...

Help might be on the way for the Chicago Bulls

Fellow die hard Bulls fans probably remember the soul-crushing defeat the Chicago Bulls suffered at the hands of Miami Heat in the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals .

What can we learn from the Chicago Bulls’ preseason?

If preseason football is too drawn out and meaningless, then preseason basketball is a bottomless pit void of almost any purpose. There aren’t really roster spot battles in the NBA like there are in the NFL, as there’s only 15 roster spots, and there isn’t a ton of opportunity to evaluate young prospects as the regular rotation players end up playing the majority of the minutes...
