Jimmy Butler was very direct in his commentary after Friday's disappointing loss to the Atlanta Hawks. "We got to come out better, man," Butler said. "We got to start playing better from the jump. 48 minutes, man. It's terrible basketball. That's not the way we're supposed to play. It's so disappointing because the way we practice isn't the way that we play in the game. Don't ask me why, I don't know. Starting from me going all the way down the line, we've got to be better as a whole, as a team. Otherwise, we're just going to keep getting our asses beat. It's bad."

Very poor effort from Bulls. No energy. Hawks getting anything they want on either end of the floor. Bulls look like they are just going through the motions tonight.

Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler has been voted a starter for the Eastern Conference All-Stars, league sources tell ESPN.

Taj Gibson, with a smile, describing Jimmy Butler: "You never know what you're going to get with Jimmy. He's like one of those patients in the hospital. One day he's going to be like, "Don't talk to me" and pissed off. The next day he's going to be like, "The sun is out." You never know what you're going to get from him, but I know definitely he wants to make the All-Star team. He's been putting a lot of work in for it."
