Over the last couple season, Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler has made a name for himself as solid defender and a talented swing forward.
Recently, Butler told the below story to ESPN Chicago about the time that he ran into Tyson Chandler while getting dinner in Los Angeles and being surprised that Tyson knew who he was:
“I was having dinner and Tyson Chandler came up to me and shook my hand,” Butler said. “He said, ‘I really respect you and how hard you play and your game.’ That’s like, wow. Dude knows who I am and I’m from Tomball, (Texas)? Nobody is supposed to know who I am. That’s a really great feeling.”
