Bulls’ Butler Says Coach Hoiberg Holding Him Accountable



A little more than a week after calling out first-year coach Fred Hoiberg and saying Hoiberg needed to coach the Chicago Bulls “a lot harder,” All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler said he and Hoiberg are “learning a lot about each other” and that Hoiberg is “holding him accountable” for his play.

“I still got respect for him,” Butler said after scoring 28 points in a 102-100 overtime win over the Indiana Pacers. “I don’t think it’s a different light. Nothing I do is to disrespect anybody. I think he realizes I’m going to be here, I realize he’s going to be here, so we got to deal with each other anyways.”
