The NBA's most beloved mascot Benny the Bull needed to be restrained Monday morning by Hall of Famer and six-time NBA champion Scottie Pippen, who serves as Special Adviser for the Chicago Bulls, after Benny was seen storming into John Paxson's office with a chalk board that read "Trade Me Now."
The Bulls today announced the hiring of Doug Collins as a senior advisor of basketball operations and -- perhaps more importantly -- as a backup shooting guard.
Eager to finally do something right on draft night, the Bulls dealt All-Star Jimmy Butler to the Timberwolves for Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and the seventh pick, which was used to select some tall dude from Finland. Bulls VP of basketball operations John Paxson explained the move to reporters, saying fans "no longer had a reason to care" about the team for a while.
“This is my team,” screamed Butler according to sources. “I’m carving the damn turkey! I was here when it was just me, Tony Snell and Cam Bairstow eating sad green bean casserole and the weird Spanish ham that Pau brought. I’ve earned my place.”
