Jimmy Butler loves football too much he believes he could be a two-sport professional athlete. The Bulls guard spoke to reporters on Saturday in Rio before the gold medal game to detail his passion for the game. "I really love the game of football," he said. "I think I'm really good at it. I could probably take [Broncos wide receiver] Demaryrius Thomas' spot, [Steelers wide receiver] Antonio Brown's spot. I told them that they're lucky that I'm playin' in the Olympics or I would be getting a franchise tag with one of their organizations."
Okaaaay. Well, that's a quite stretch considering that Thomas just sonned another troll in Josh Norman Tuesday, he's a Super Bowl champion, and Brown is undoubtedly one of the best wide-outs in the NFL. But if you don't believe in yourself, then who else will, right?
Brown took Butler's quote in stride and responded to him by photoshopping Butler in a Steelers uniform. Brown posted the pic on his IG account Tuesday, and it reiterates that Brown's got skills not only on the gridiron, but also as a social media editor.
Can you just imagine Butler rocking the orange and navy blue? Or Pittsburgh fans twirling around a "Terrible towel" for Butler? Keep dreamin', Jimmy.
