I never really liked Butler yet, I'm ready for the turn

That's the dilemma.  Don't you see?  The Bulls have pretty much moved on from Thib and the D.Rose era.

 

But the deeper issue here is the fact that Butler has not impressed/lead enough.  IMHO Butler was no where near as impressive as Rose.  Butler is frustrated, he feels he has the privilege to point fingers.  Because of this, Butler has thrown his team-mates under the bus. 

 

Butler is probably ahead of Rose in discussions/stats, but it's only because Rose has taken a nose dive.  Aside from that fact, Butler has not exhibited anything close to being a franchise guy.  If he was, well he better learn how to lead.  

 

Edit:

Again, people don't understand, nor do they realize.  Pau Gasol has been the savior for this team.   No one will talk about him, but he's been the anchor night in and night out.  He's had a lot more mileage on him than probably Butler and Rose combined, yet they refuse to talk about him.  On the low end though, Gasol has mentioned how he will test free agency.  That tells me he no longer feel the Bulls are in contention; he is probably correct too.

Butler not good enough yet to be saying stuff like this. Got to be at least Melo level (no knock on Melo) to say this kind've stuff. Which means very few players in the league has that privilege.

Dudes in here talking so reckless, I had to go and look at the stats.

 

Butler avg 21 points a game, 5 rebounds and 3 assists (Melo avg 21, 7 and 3)

 

Pau avg 15 and 10

 

Butler is the the leading scorer for the Bulls....Drose has been playing terrible until a week ago and Pau can't shoot

 

What am I missing?

He's not a franchise player. Yet.

And nobody's saying DRose should still be considered a franchise player. Butler's clearly the best player on the team. Why even bring up Rose and Pau?

Coaches say stuff like this about players all the time. Don't mind a player saying it at all. Coaches get way too many passes.

More referring to how he comes off to other players. He runs the risk of singling himself out from the others if he continues to call people out within the team.

criticizing the players publically is a part of a coaches job.  criticizing the coaching publically is not part of a players job.  that's in house stuff if u got an issue.  

 

but if the two guys that im most responsible for defending are the other teams leading scorers im probably gonna keep my mouth shut

Butler could be averaging 40 points a game and he still shouldn't be running his mouth through the media

Some stuff you leave in the locker room

If he wants to demonstrate leadership, he's perfectly free to do so behind closed doors

Yeah jimmy got "Hollywood" on us Bulls fans real quick. I blame him being besties with Whalberg roll.gif

When Thibs was let go there was reports that players felt practices were TOO hard and Tom was so demanding etc etc..

This year there's been nothing but complaints from players, my brother called this he said Fred is going to give them too much freedom and it'll back fire. At some point players have to be held accountable.

And Pau gotta go.

I'm just fed up with most of the team as a whole, tbh. Maybe Fred might be too laid back, yes, but that shouldn't matter.

You're grown men, getting paid to play ball. Playing basketball is your job. You're not babies. Don't look for the coach to hold you accountable. Do that yourselves.

An NBA coach should only be there to give you the x and o's at this level. All the other stuff, motivating you to execute it hard enough shouldn't even have to be a part of his job.

First Thibs was coaching them too hard, now Hoiberg is too carefree.

 

These fools don't know what they want. :lol

I feel your pain, brother. I'm pretty fed up with the Clippers this season too, starting with the head coach.

Guess he thinks being the best player on the team and wearing Jordans makes him Jordan. Not so much.

Lets hope this is the end of the line for him and he never coaches again

I saw Biedrins first play the year before he got drafted when he came to the states to play in an AAU tourney. He was supposed to play with Durant at Montrose but couldn't get cleared. Son was the real deal. Fool came here and GAVE it to dudes who were 5 and 4 stars. Don't know what happened after his first couple years in the L.

There you go.

 

So many questions, the two most important of which are

 

A. Why are you bringing random people whom you just met into your home when you're rich? Go get a hotel.

B. WHY DO YOU NOT OWN A SAFE? Putting expensive Jewelry in a Louis Vuitton case is the opposite of inconspicuous.
