Jimmy Butler responds to Stephen A. Smith's declaration about Bulls being behind Cavs and Heat

New, comment

Jimmy Butler was a brave soul last week and went on ESPN First Take to talk to Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless about basketball, although talking to Smith about anything probably takes a good amount of courage and/or nerve medication.

Jimmy has a perfect response to the Smith's barbs about Cleveland and Miami being better than Chicago going into next season:

I can't change your mind. You are who you are.

You're wise beyond your years, young Butler.

There's nothing groundbreaking here, but it's great to see Butler humble, calm and composed as he emerges into the spotlight. He does actually break down his affinity for Taylor Swift so that could be considered groundbreaking to some of you.
