Dwyane Wade Says the Chicago Bulls are ‘Jimmy Butler’s Team’

Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(CHICAGO) — Despite being one of the most decorated players in the NBA, Dwayne Wade called the Chicago Bulls “Jimmy [Butler’s] team” when he was introduced to the media Friday.

“This is Jimmy’s team,” Wade said of his new teammate. “It won’t be a tug and pull whose team it is.” Wade, 34, who had played for the Miami Heat since 2003, signed a two-year, $47 million deal with the Bulls this month.

“I’ve know him since Marquette,” the 12-time All-Star also said about Butler. “I have tremendous respect for him. This would not have happened if it hadn’t been for Jimmy Butler. That was huge.”

Earlier this month, Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo said the team now had “three alphas” which included himself, Wade, and Butler, but also called the Bulls Butler’s team.
