The Marquette Related Tweet Of The Week: 4/30-5/6

Jimmy doing Jimmy things. - Chris Trotman

Oh, you better believe we're talking about JMFB.

Here at Anonymous Eagle, we're hip to all the latest trends on the internet... or so we tell ourselves. We know how much the kids today like to keep in touch and communicate through social media. In particular, we're big fans of the service known the world over as Twitter. Each week, we'll bring you a tweet that we found particularly interesting/funny/thought provoking/ridiculous that has some kind of Marquette connection to it.

If you're paying attention to the NBA playoffs, you've almost assuredly noticed that the Bulls are winning games even though Derrick Rose is still out after ACL surgery, Kirk Hinrich is out with a calf bruise, Luol Deng is in the hospital after complications from a spinal tap to test him for meningitis, and Joakim Noah is playing with plantar fasciitis. This has led head coach Tom Thibodeau to play the cards he still has in his hand, and one of them is Jimmy Butler.

That's 4:29 of Game 5 of the Nets series, all of Game 6, all of Game 7, and all of Game 1 against the Heat last night. And what did Jimmy do last night against the Heat? Oh, y'know, held LeBron James, the 2012-13 MVP to 1-6 from the field in the first half without committing a foul, and then on the last two possessions of the game, Butler forced James into a terrible running fadeaway and a deep three that clanked off the rim as the Bulls closed out a 93-86 win. Y'know, every day stuff. Jimmy had the main assignment on LeBron for Game 1 and James ended with a -15 for the game, while Butler finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds, and was +7.

Nicely done, Jimmy. See you on Wednesday for another 48?
