“I wasn’t consistent enough. I had good games, average games, decent games and some terrible games. I don’t want to have terrible and decent games. Average games can get us over the hump. Really good ones can make us win.” Butler said he plans to work out with Derrick Rose in the offseason. “I think we will,” he said. “When we lose, you’ve got to find something to talk about, and why not talk about that? That’s a great story. I think that has nothing to do with anything. But, yeah, we’ll work out together and figure out ways to make ourselves coexist.”

So why did anyone care how Butler got to New Orleans? Chris Broussard of ESPN: Some players, and I’m not saying it wasn’t a family commitment, but there were some – I know at least one player in particular, a starter – who felt like he was a bit bothered by the fact that Jimmy wasn’t on the plane. And it was a misperception. He felt it was emblematic of a little bit of the preferential treatment that a lot of people say Butler’s been getting now that he’s emerged as the best players on the Bulls from the front office and things like that. There’s a division. There’s all types of dysfunction in Chicago. There’s kind of a division in that locker room.
