Jimmy Butler’s Taylor Swift sing along in the Bulls locker room earlier this year makes a little more sense now. The Bulls guard was on hand Friday for the country music festival, Windy City Smokeout, at Grand Avenue and the Chicago River. Ex-Bear Greg Olsen – now with the Carolina Panthers —was also there, separately. On Saturday, Butler checked out the National Women’s Soccer League game between the Chicago Red Stars and Seattle Reign FC and then tweeted a photo of himself out to dinner with Reign star Sydney Leroux.

But he understood that it was a difficult decision and he told me he would always support me. We have a relationship that goes beyond basketball. Our friendship is forever. He told me he will always be there and I will always be there for him, of course. Marca.com

But here’s another funny thing: The outside perception of Boozer contrasted with how those inside the organization viewed him. “I’m behind Carlos 110 percent,” Taj Gibson told the Tribune during this season’s playoffs. “He’s as supportive a teammate as I’ve had.” Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Bulls announced today that the team has amnestied forward Carlos Boozer. “Carlos epitomized professionalism in everything he did for the Bulls both on the court, and in the community, during his time here in Chicago,” said Chicago Bulls General Manager Gar Forman. “Over the last four seasons, Carlos’ productivity helped elevate our team to another level. I have nothing but respect for Carlos, and certainly wish him the best as he moves forward.” NBA.com

Recent free agent Pau Gasol says signing for the Bulls over NBA champion San Antonio or Oklahoma City came down to a gut decision. Gasol says on Tuesday that after speaking with Bulls players Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, “instinct told me to pick Chicago.” Chicago Sun-Times
