Jimmy Butler wants Mason Plumlee to pay his fine

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Late in last night's game, Jimmy Butler of the Bulls got into an altercation with Mason Plumlee of the Plumlees after Plumlee trucked Jimmy on a screen.

As you can see, in response Butler tried to pull a Dellavadildo and received a technical. Plumlee got a flagrant-1.

After the game, Butler was quite quotable!

He cost me $2,500," Butler said. "I'm not happy about that. I'm going to ask him to pay me back -- and I'm not playing."

Butler said he would ask for the money "nicely" at first, before taking a dig at Plumlee, a Duke alumnus.

"I'm going to tell my agent [Happy Walters] to email him or something," Butler said. "I know [his address] is or something."

Butler also invoked the hometown of Taj Gibson by saying he almost had to bring some 'Fort Greene' out of him in retaliation. Butler, as he'll tell you, is a cowboy from Tomball, Texas.
