Take your pick of the Marquette guys, really. I chose Butler though because, as admitted, i'm a Bulls fan. When there's a close competition like that, i'll take the Bulls player every time. Also, Jimmy Butler was the Bulls' bestp layer in November by far, and is going to get a max contract.

What kind of defense is this? As I mentioned in the tweet, being ancient isn't an excuse to be slow on defense, Knicks.

Wade's reaction to this is pretty awesome. That's his wife, Gabrielle Union, hijacking his post game interview.
