Jimmy Butler has quickly become one of the league’s top talent. He is now in his sixth season and is a two-time All-Star and Olympic Gold Medalist. His 2016-2017 season is off to a hot start, as he currently leads the team with an average of 25 points per game.
Chicago selected Jimmy in 2011 as their 30th overall pick. The 2014-2015 season was a breakout year for Jimmy, averaging 20 points per game while leading the league in minutes played and earning the league’s Most Improved Player award. He continued to perform well in 2015-2016, when he led the team in points per game and became an undisputed leader of the team.
Off the court, Jimmy is heavily involved with the team’s, “Becoming a Man” program, a dropout prevention and anti-violence initiative for at-risk young men in Chicago.
