Jimmy Butler took the blame for the Bulls failing to make the playoffs. Chicago Tribune
The Scoop: "I'm the reason that we did not make the playoffs," Butler said. "I'm fine with that. I'm not happy with it, but I'm fine with it. Because it's only going to make me stronger and better." Butler had a really strong start to the 2015-16 season, but a knee injury slowed him down after the All-Star break and he wasn't the same player during the crucial stretch of the season. He will now have the full offseason to get his knee right and he still finished as a top-15 player in standard leagues, so maybe he will be available at a slight discount in fantasy drafts this coming season.
