Jimmy Butler now has 87 points in his last 2 1/2 games. This is the best offensive stretch of his career.

Steve Aschburner

Pregame Raptors C Dwane Casey said he's had a "man-crush" on Jimmy Butler for a while. There's one possible East All-Star reserve vote.

Ryan Wolstat

Dwane Casey said he’s “been in love with Jimmy Butler for a long time.” Said he has “man crush” on Butler, who surely will win most improved

Chris Sheridan

Jimmy Butler again, Nikola Mirotic this time and a cast of many leave Memphis with the blues. blogs.bulls.com/2014/12/bulls-…

Nick Friedell

Overheard from a lady at Memphis bar: "I love me some Jimmy Butler!" Dude next to her says: "He looks like Jamie Foxx in Booty Call!"

Chris Vernon

After seein Jimmy Butler in person, gotta say that only Harden and Thompson possible better SG's, right? He is legit. Both ends.

KC Johnson

Frank Isola

The issue isn't that Jimmy Butler plays too much, it's that Derrick Rose doesn't play enough.

Frank Isola

While the Bulls media obsesses over Jimmy Butler's minutes, Tim Duncan, aka Old Man Riverwalk played 47 minutes on Wednesday & 43 tonight.

Mike McGraw

Nice back-to-back by Jimmy Butler -- 66 pts, 15 rebs, 8 asts, 6 steals, 22-42 FGS, 18-19 FTs, 88 mins. #Bulls win at Memphis 103-97.

Jarrod Gillis

Probably too soon for people to handle, but hard to keep Jimmy Butler out of MVP talk. No doubt, in my mind, that he should be an All-Star.

Nick Friedell

Bulls PR says if Jimmy Butler plays 2 more minutes tonight it will be the 13th time he will have played 40+ minutes in a game this year.

Joe Cowley

Jimmy Butler has to be in the early MVP talk, despite @Nick Friedell crying about his heavy minutes. Star players play. Always have.

Jimmy Butler may have to cough on Derrick Rose more often. Not skipping a beat.

Joe Cowley

Noah looked like a skinny pulling guard on that Jimmy Butler take.

Where would the Bulls' offense be without Jimmy Butler recently? He doesn't even look like the same player from a year ago.

Frank Isola

Interesting to see how Jimmy Butler & Iman Shumpert both entered the NBA at same time and yet only one has seen his career take off.

Adi Joseph

Things Jimmy Butler has said recently: - I want to date Taylor Swift. - I don't care about being a star. Well, Jimmy, B miiiight beget A.

Tas Melas

“I don't want to be a star, I just want to be a decent role player on a really good team.” —A basketball player. Fo’ real. Jimmy Butler.

Derek Bodner

Reverse mailbag: add Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid, and Karl Towns to the #sixers, how many games do they win next year? In 3 years?
