Jimmy Buckets is becoming a star, dropping 30+ points in consecutive nights for the first time in his career. After a career-high 35 points Thursday night against the Knicks, Butler once again led the Derrick Rose-less Bulls to victory with a 31-point, 10-rebound night in Memphis. They call him Jimmy G. Buckets, but the G doesn't stand for "gets". It stands for "getting paid".
