Jimmy Butler showed off his skills on the football field earlier this summer and now the Bulls star is telling people that he could make it in the NFL. During a media session before today’s Gold medal game against Serbia, Jimmy said that he could take the spots of NFL All-Pro’s Antonio Brown and Demaryius Thomas.
“I really love the game of football. I think I’m really good at it. I could probably take Demaryius Thomas’ spot, Antonio Brown’s spot,” Butler said. “I told them they’re lucky I’m playing in the Olympics or I would be getting a franchise tag from one of their organizations.”
Butler’s Team USA teammates don’t have as much confidence in the All-Star’s gridiron skills.
“He’s an idiot,” said Kevin Durant, “Jimmy’s an idiot.”
