Jimmy Butler and the Bulls are in Cleveland tonight for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Not surprisingly, Chicago is pretty amped for the series, and not at all worried about the “intimidation factor” that the Cavs might impose on other, less battle-tested teams.
Butler, for one, said Monday that while he has ultimate respect for LeBron’s skills, he’s not intimidated in the “slightest.”
From KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune via Twitter:
Butler on LBJ: "He really is a talented player in this league, but I don’t think that intimidates me not to the slightest bit."
