    that's too freaking funny, Carl Herrera!! I didn't expect him to use the phrase verbatim!

    the quote

    “I believe in the guys in this locker room, yeah, but I also believe that we probably have to be coached a lot harder at times,” Jimmy Butler said​

    I like jimmy butler but man he talks to much to the media about stuff that should stay in house.

    If I was his coach I would be so pissed. This isn't the first incident he's had this year. Earlier he questioned why his coach didn't leave him in to start the 4th quarter for even just 1 min? Butler needs to get it together your not lebron James bro.

    He needs to learn to keep his mouth shut the media is getting everything they want out of him and more and it's going to become a problem for him down the line.

    Uh, I don't see him disrespecting the coach. He saying essentially "we need to be whipped into shape sometimes. Me included."

    You can actually say that's what the leader and hardest working player should say in public as an opening to allow the "laid-back" style coach to yell, sometimes.

    I believe that FIBA coaches would be much better in NBA than NCAA coaches. Blatt, Etore Messina. NCAA basketball is too different to NBA basketball.

    My dream of a Bulls implosion is starting to come to reality. Just a little bit more.

    He seems to publicly call out anyone he perceives as not up to his standard. Hold those around you accountable, but don't tell the media you prick.

    Some players like and need to be motivated. Nothing wrong with that at all.

    It's not that. He had mad respect for Coach thibs, it was others(namely Noah and a bit of Rose) that were tired of Thibs constant demands.

    He's a little pissed about that.

    No he's saying "We should've kept Thibs, the new guy's soft".

    Players need to play harder. Coaches need to coach harder. That's all that is.
