Hate seeing the Bulls do Thibs like this, but can't help but feel happy for Jimmy Butler's knees.

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler declined comment regarding Thibs situation. Players and assistants still filing in and out of Advocate Center.

Chris Fedor

Thinking back on this postseason, I gained a greater respect for Jimmy Butler & Tom Thibodeau for what they did against Cavs in semis.

Steve Kyler

A couple of comments --- reports of a rift between Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler are unfounded - no rift at all.

Sean Highkin


KC Johnson

Jimmy Butler (32 points) and Joakim Noah (2 points) only other Bulls to draw votes.

Here are my all-NBA picks. In retrospect, I’d have Griffin and Jimmy Butler as the third-team Fs. sbnation.com/2015/4/15/8407…

Mike McGraw

If there was 4th team All-NBA, Jimmy Butler would have been on it. Joined Kawhi Leonard, Wall, Horford, Millsap at top of others rec votes

DeMarre Carroll’s defense on LeBron is gonna get Jimmy Butler the super max.

#Bulls lost that defensive rep this season. No players make 1st-team all-defense. Jimmy Butler makes 2nd team.

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler has been voted onto the NBA's All-Defensive 2nd team. Thibs repeatedly said this year he's one of best 2-way players in league.

Jimmy Butler, this year’s #NBA most improved selected with 30th pick, one of many examples of overachieving difference makers

Jimmy Butler and Draymond Green were way ahead of league in Most Improved race. But Capela definitely most improved since mid-April.

4. IMMENSE respect for Jimmy Butler. Played GREAT D on LeBron -- best since Kawhi -- still averaged 21 per game on offense. Not enough help.

Chris Fedor

Jimmy Butler helped hold LeBron James to 61-of-153 (39%) in the series. Best defense on LeBron I have seen since Kawhi Leonard.

Chris Fedor

A lot of respect from LeBron James to Jimmy Butler: "I think he’s a competitor and that’s half the battle. They've got a good one in him"

Mike Prada

Jimmy Butler looks tired. None of his drives have looked decisive tonight.

Tony Jones

Derrick Rose completely ignored Jimmy Butler isolated on the wing with a foul-laden LeBron James guarding him. Selfish play

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler is doing a great job on LeBron so far. James is just 2-for-9 from the field.

Andy Larsen

Reminder, in case you forgot: Jimmy Butler's life story is incredible. @Chad Ford article from predraft 2011: sports.espn.go.com/nba/draft2011/…

Ethan J. Skolnick

Tom Thibodeau says he didn't have a problem with Jimmy Butler's late off-balance shot. "That's how he shoots,"

Nick Friedell

LeBron with some high praise of Jimmy Butler: "I love going against Jimmy, I think it brings out the best in myself."

Chris Fedor

For all the crap Tom Thibodeau takes about his offense -- and it's bad at times -- Jimmy Butler had a great look in the final minute.
