The Jimmy Butler Trade Was So Bad For The Chicago Bulls That Even NBA 2K Rejects It
On draft night, the Chicago Bulls traded away their superstar forward Jimmy Butler and the 16th pick in the draft to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and sixth pick. Many NBA pundits have crushed the Bulls for making the move and now even NBA 2K seems to be chiming in with their opinion on the trade.
Here’s a screenshot of what happens when you try to trade make the exact same Bulls-Wolves trade on NBA 2K17.
You’re asking me to give away a valuable asset (Jimmy Butler) when none of the assets I get back seems nearly as valuable. That’s not happening.
Maybe Gar Forman should have consulted with 2k before making this ridiculous trade for the Bulls.
