Jimmy didn't prove anyone wrong. I said you'll never win a title with him as your best player, and through his career I have been right. Let's see if he proves me wrong. Hope you're not holding your breath.
This really strikes me as a foolish time to be bragging. Butler exceeded every expectation this year, and showed what he could do with a team that's built around his strengths. The Bulls were unwilling to do that, and it's been our loss. An NBA team was never able to win with Karl Malone as its best player either, but that doesn't mean you don't try. All you can reasonably hope for is being in the mix of contending teams. Jimmy Butler would have done that for us, especially in a Lebron-less East.
Zero bragging, none. Just stating facts.
i would hope not. because, you see...NOT A SINGLE PERSON HAS EVER PREDICTED JIMMY WOULD LEAD A TEAM TO A CHAMPIONSHIP! he surprised EVERYONE by his latest extraordinary accomplishment
what's next, are you going to say "see, i TOLD you there wouldn't be a COVID-19 vaccine by the fall"?
how 'bout "ya see, lonzo ball still isn't all-nba! told ya!"
or maybe "christ didn't return in 2020, just like i said! when ya all gonna learn?!"
talk about a frontrunner
and to pre-empt your next lame talking point, "jimmy COULD lead a team to a championship" (which many people have said - even prior to this season) is NOT the same as "jimmy WILL lead a team to a championship" (which nobody has said). this season he effectively proved the former, leading a mediocre supporting cast to game 6 of the finals against an outstanding teamjimmy butler is capable of leading a team to a championship. that is now irrefutable reality. and anyone who ever claimed otherwise looks pretty damn silly right now
. almost as silly as a person who would pick right now to pretend that a prediction about jimmy not leading a team to a title is somehow notable (i won't mention any names)
