This is not my Jimmy Butler... not as good looking anymore... no Chicago Bull anymore

Guess he needed a change in his looks, I can relate to that. Way to go Jimmy... Now have an awesome season for Thibs and the Wolves. I'll probably have a look every once in a while..

Former Hornets big man Christian Wood has signed with Fujian in China, according to David Pick.

I liked this kid. Wish we had used our 2nd 2-way on him or just withdrew Niko's QO and signed him instead.
Yay Bulls! :D

Its kinda sad. This year its going to end our run of playing on Christmas. Not even on national games the first week. I was so used to that.

This is what absolutely sucks about a rebuild. No national media cares about you. No one is interested in the team. We are just irrelevant again.

Yep. Just where a team wants to be without any extra draft picks going forward (actually 2 in the hole).

I'd argue we weren't relevant last season either.

As a big DRose fan, I think that rating's pretty spot on. The guy just signed for the minimum for heavens sake.

Hurts to see everyone complaining after every rating comes out, though. Reminds me of how many filthy casuals are out there, we're spoilt on RealGM with all the smart bball watchers 8-)
Thibs face still as relevant as ever in 2017.

Once he starts balling his rating will go up. If he stays healthy and cavs win games I can see him going to like 85. Playing with lebron will make him better

The problem is that in the last 2 games he was better. So he goes out and has his best since season since getting hurt and they lower his ratings? It's just inconsistent.

I think 78 is pretty generous. 75 would be more accurate in my book.

He's gonna be a high-ceiling in limited action kind of a guy, but his injury proneness and advanced/defensive stats are gonna continue plummeting, especially after yet another meniscus surgery.

The only thing he has going for him, is his efficiency will go up by sharing the floor with Lebron and the ultra hot shooting Cavs, not to mention playing less minutes against bench players.

Really glad he chose the contender route. Hope he can win some games and chisel out his role as a bench option.

There's stupid. Then there's reeeally stupid. And then there's Zach Randolph.

You can't help people like that. No amount of lawyers.
