06:19 PM ET 12.11 | Jimmy Butler has really been a bright spot so far this Bulls season. He has become quite the spark off the bench; significantly and specifically in the fourth quarter. As of lately he has become one of Thibodeau''s go to guys down the stretch. Butler is obviously a way better defender than he is with his offenseive rhythm, which of course he is working on. We all know Jimmy can shoot the ball, it's a matter of him finding his post and becoming consistent with it. With time he will develop into an all around - versatile small forward. Luol Deng's time in Chicago is limited, as either he won't be brought back when his contract is up, or his age will begin to play a role in how he's used. Butler won't usurp Deng this year or if Deng comes back, but we're starting to see the transition between the Deng era and the Butler era will be a smooth one.
