Earlier in this week’s NBA Power Rankings I mentioned that the Chicago Bulls are one of my favorite teams in the NBA mainly because this is one of the worst rosters ever put together yet they’re still competing every night.
After Wednesday night’s 114-119 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, Dwayne Wade and Jimmy Butler grabbed mics to shit on everyone on the team and blow each other. I loved every second of it.
Wade, a three-time NBA champion with the Miami Heat, said it pisses him off that winning doesn’t mean more to his teammates.
“I can look at Jimmy and say Jimmy is doing his job,” the 35-year-old told reporters postgame. “I think Jimmy can look at me and say Dwyane is doing his job. I don’t know if we can keep going down the line and be able to say that.
“You guys see our lineup. There’s a lot of shuffling around. Coach don’t feel he can count on that many guys right now. That can’t be.”
“This just can’t be acceptable if you want to do anything besides have an NBA jersey on and make some money. That’s all we’re doing,” Wade said.
“Everyone don’t care enough. You got to care enough, man. It’s got to mean that much to you to want to win.”
Butler, who was recently named an All-Star starter, echoed the veteran’s sentiment: “We don’t play hard enough. This is your job. I want to play with guys who care.”
“I understand if you’ve got an open shot take it. But at a point in the game like that, you gotta get the ball to your best players,” said Butler, who finished with 40 points on 13-of-22 shooting to go along with four rebounds, three assists, and three steals.
So who is the biggest asshole on the Chicago Bulls?
Dwayne Wade is just a dick. He seems like the type of guy who demands you pay homage to him on his birthday but will completely ignore you on your day. Definitely the type of guy who will text you ‘what’s up?’ and then never answer again regardless of your response.
Jimmy Butler just telling his teammates to give him the ball whether they or open or not is a great way to make sure you get into that #1 asshole spot that everyone’s fighting for on this team. I respect the hustle.
The craziest thing is that these two sociopaths make Rajon Rondo look like the most modest and lovable guy in the NBA. There’s also Michael Carter Williams demanding playing time and Jerian Grant subtweeting his teammates after loses.
So again, who is the biggest asshole on the Chicago Bulls?
Probably Michael Reinsdorf and John Paxson for putting together a band of dicks. They gave no shits about team chemistry, or having 4 point guards who can all start. I earnestly hope this team wins a championship like, yesterday.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you also can’t stop watching the Chicago Bulls. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
