    High level defender now averaging 20 ppg. Houston native Jimmy Butler is looking smart for turning down an extension offer.

    He was drafted 30th in the 2011 draft, which saw Daryl Morey pass on Kawhi Leonard, Nic Vucevic, Kenneth Faried and Jimmy Butler to draft Marcus Morris and Donatas Motiejunas.

    I know this is CH sarcasm, but why would Morey sign Butler to a max contract when Ariza does the same things for $8mm?

    Stick to PGs and PFs, Carl.

    Being that this is in the dish I don't think he was trying to say we should or will sign him. I think it was another one of those "are we just gonna ignore the season that ___________ is having without using that way overused title.

    You think he's gonna keep up this pace? 'Cause I don't.

    Same goes for Klay Thompson
