Bulls star Jimmy Butler takes in Chicago Catholic League championship game

By

Chicago Bulls leading scorer Jimmy Butler is sidelined with a strained left knee.

So while he’s rehabbing, he took in some high school basketball. Butler was in the front row at the Chicago Catholic League championship game on the DePaul campus on Sunday.

Mike Smith had 27 points as Fenwick (Oak Park) beat St. Joseph 73-51. Butler complimented Smith during a TV interview at halftime and the two posed for photos after the game. Butler posted a message for Smith on Instagram, including the line: “my guy got serious game. And damn sure wears 21 better than I do.”

Smith told The Chicago Tribune: “It was very exciting to play in front of a Chicago Bulls player and have him watch me and for us to win the game.”
