Former Marquette Golden Eagles star Jimmy Butler was named to the All-NBA 3rd team!

The Chicago Bulls forward landed on the 3rd team after a terrific 2016-17 campaign. Butler averaged 23.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the field.

Butler joins Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors), John Wall (Washington Wizards), DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors) and DeAndre Jordan (Los Angeles Clippers) on a star-studded All-NBA Third Team.

Congrats to Butler on the accomplishment!
