After four seasons of absolute lockdown defense, the Chicago Bulls have been stunningly mediocre this season. And Jimmy Butler believes he knows why.

Blame him.

“I think it starts with me, to tell you the truth,” Butler said before Wednesday’s 101-90 loss to the Houston Rockets. “I’m supposed to be this prime-time defender and I don’t think I’ve been holding up my end of the bargain lately. So I think whenever I start kicking it up three, four notches on defense and not worry about offense as much, I think it’ll all turn around.”
