Jimmy Butler played for a Bulls-record 60 minutes Wednesday night. To mark the occasion, we revisit this post from May 8, 2013:
The Bulls have been blowing minds lately, but the stat that’s really hurting our brains these days is the fact that second-year guard, full-time ChicagoSide man-crush Jimmy Butler has played every minute of the last three games (and the last four-plus of Game Five against the Nets). Getting him off the court has become more difficult than convincing D-Wade he’s ever committed a foul.
Just how insane is Jimmy Buckets’ streak? Take a look at this little graphic we tossed together.
Basically, he’s Iron Man.
