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 MisterDukie@yahoo.com 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.
