NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler was offered a ticket to watch his friend, Demaryius Thomas, and his beloved Denver Broncos play the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. The NBA schedule, though, provided a different plan. “I can’t go, man. I have to worry about the Bulls winning games,” Butler told Yahoo Sports recently. “I got to do what I have to do to help this team win. I am disappointed. We have the day off, but I’d have a lot of travel to get to the Super Bowl.
Butler said he met Thomas at the ESPY Awards a couple years ago. Butler, whose mom abandoned him at age 13, reached out to Thomas on Twitter in November 2014 after reading a story about Thomas’ difficult childhood, which included his mother and grandmother going to prison. “I just touched base when I found out a little bit about his background, him being from the country and, obviously, his mom’s situation,” Butler told Yahoo Sports. “We kind of just bonded. All the obstacles he’s been through and how hard he’s worked to get to where he is, I really respect that. It builds character.

Chicago Bulls All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler will not play Saturday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves because of a sprained left knee. Butler injured the knee late in the second quarter of Friday night’s loss to the Denver Nuggets. He was scheduled to have an MRI on the knee Saturday morning in Minneapolis. The results of that MRI were unclear, though Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg had said Friday that the initial diagnosis was that Butler did not have any ligament damage.
