“I don’t want to be a star,” Butler said. “I just want to be a decent role player on a really good team.”
Whether he wants to be one or not, the Butler is becoming a star in the league and last night against the Melo-less, Shumpert-less & JR Smith-less Knicks he scored a career-high 35 points .
“All I can say is thank God for Jimmy Butler,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “You can’t say enough about him.”
Butler also had a game-high 7 assists, 5 rebounds, 4 steals and 4 3-pointers.
