The Chicago Tribune Live panel breaks down what Jimmy Butler has brought to the Bulls over the last few weeks - 1/29
Last night -- post that in 9385 win over the Bobcats thanks to another big game for super sophomore Jimmy Butler -- a game high nineteen off the bench. His fourth straight home game would double digit scoring. Tom Thibodeau even experiment it was an -- to guard who all of that and on the floor the same time self. -- going forward should the Butler be starting or should -- keep the rotation. He's not argue with me about Jimmy -- couple weeks background -- you use the word great but I think he's going to be great for his team not so rested all at the restaurant will only take a guy I listen to it -- -- -- better not let these great. And then I went on to say he's going to be great for his game and he's looking pretty great right now is right he'll -- through the did you tell us what you back pedal when you interviewed him did you say hey man I don't think you're going to be that good. I didn't say it was a good the other pocono because I wanna lower -- anyway today I -- -- Going back to the game though he he did he had a great overall game last night I think it was a great experiment deployment to two I think it's something that should should really consider. Moving forward because we don't know about rip Hamilton. Of course you need a veteran guy out there you know. They're scoring that he brings that's what you brought rip Hamilton to do this to score. But Jimmy gives you flexibility in the defense and really athletic he can do so many balls he gets out he gets rebounds I saw him take -- dribble last time. Both ways are just like wow man this kid who show -- some things -- the one thing you like about it that kept up playing at a high level you know he's coming off the bench. Know some guys might say hey I'm not starting more. Don't know what camera brings with him kept it up he kept it up -- high level play. Start Smart -- really didn't matter I mean this team needs to -- -- since as a starter but you only play the first quarters so really doesn't matter who starts the game breakfast for the common -- great player -- you really should have acknowledged this a couple of weeks ago you know -- -- I -- the -- comes to -- Marlins -- four but I wouldn't do that used the -- sophomore and actually does apply because he is almost like a college kid was a freshman didn't know what he was doing. And now as the sophomores Boston and. A huge improvement is the perfect -- to break off the bench because. Do you find out what you're gonna get from the guy you have out there at the start some rip Hamilton's healthy. If he's off that night his creaky that night. You can bring in Jimmy Butler and he fills that role you can plug him in somewhere else if you've got deficiency that night in that role if he is hot. You keep -- game you let him finish at the end of the game immunity. He's a perfect got to bring off the bench just because he didn't do apparently. -- started do a lot of different things for you. So you can fill whatever you need on that night as -- -- pigeon holing Emery from -- are also in the defense to stop right then -- -- of course -- just because you saw him in college -- right a -- -- what what was your take on him -- -- yeah I mean it's -- similar to the way I mean Marquette. We always play with me you know three guys even like four around one from a guy like Lazar Hayward was like their power forward or even their center at times really. NBA small forward type guy so. Five out four around one Tebow there was the kind of guy just basically did a little bit everything he could. Play a four at times in college and he needed to at times in college. That's why I think he's title for this team right now off the bench if you need him to do something that night. He's more like we will do it then rip Hamilton it was just basically -- on Emil one trick pony but you know you're gonna get from this point. Jamie Pollard come -- give you a lot of things you and -- and kept. What I was trying to say is this I just think long term you look at a young kid like that. Shown flashes I think once they're -- gets back in your opinion about the future. What a great running partner Ted how he's going to be a really solid -- Margaret is -- -- no question and I definitely.
