Jimmy Butler Says Bulls Can’t Let Heat Three-Peat

I love where this rivalry is going. The breakout player of the Chicago Bulls last year, Jimmy Butler had some interesting things to say in an interview with ESPN 1000 in Chicago.

“I don’t think anybody wants to watch (the ring ceremony) on our team so we won’t pay too much attention to it,” Butler said Tuesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN Chicago 1000. “They deserved it. They won a championship, definitely, but they got to deal with the Chicago Bulls for 48 minutes coming out right after that, they get their rings….

“I think so,” Butler said when asked about the dislike between the teams. “But it’s not just us, it’s the city. That rivalry, it’s crazy. They’re the back-to-back champions and when you think three-peat, you think Chicago so we can’t let that happen.”

It remains to be seen if the Bulls have the talent to get by the Heat in the playoffs. One thing is for sure: Chicago is not afraid. Opening night is going to be interesting.
