Chicago Bulls Rumors
I asked Butler about him bragging about his football skills on social media in an interview in March and he told me, “That’s just me being me,” while adding, “My love for football is right up there with my love for basketball, except I’m probably better at one sport over the other.” That brings us to Saturday and this video Butler shared of himself going up against Thomas. Butler gets beat, and in the caption, he wrote, “bad day for me in front yard football with @demaryiust88 .. i can see my football dreams slipping away.”
And all I can tell you is most everyone associated with the Bulls believes Wade will pick up the option and remain in Chicago for a second season. More surprising things have happened in league history, though. So stay tuned. Wade’s player option decision is due by June 27 according to The Vertical’s Bobby Marks. Most previous reporting pegged it to June 30.
