Marcus Smart Finds Butler’s Comments Laughable


The Celtics guard (Marcus Smart) certainly never heard something like it before when, after his brief nose-to-nose chat with Jimmy Butler in Game 4, the Bulls forward later said, “he is a great actor, acting tough. That is what he does. But I don’t think he’s about that.”

Asked about his reaction, Smart looked towards the nearest camera, raised his voice, and said, “Haha.”

Initially asked to comment, Smart made one passing attempt to deflect the conversation, saying, “I laugh at that. This is about Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls, not Marcus Smart vs. Jimmy.”
