Chicago native and three-time All Star Antoine Walker said that Jimmy Butler did a poor job of leading the Bulls off the court. Walker said that Jimmy created a divided locker room in Chicago last season.
In a recent ESPN interview, Antoine Walker said this about Jimmy Butler:
“He’s just a bad locker room guy. A lot of outbursts took place throughout the season, with the coaches, with the players.
“You try to build something, especially in Chicago, and he’s going to be your best player, he has to be a leader on and off the court.
“And and did a poor example of that. I think that’s why the Bulls kind of parted ways with him.”
While being a guest on ESPN’s The Jump, Scottie Pippen said that Jimmy Butler had leadership issues with the Bulls.
Scottie on The Jump said that Butler disrespected Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg and an assistant coach, which ultimately turned the organization against him.
