Things didn’t go as planned for the Chicago Bulls this season, that much is sure. But who is to blame for all the turmoil? Some would say it’s new head coach Fred Hoiberg, but Jimmy Butler says it’s all on him.

Butler told the Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein:

“I’m the reason that we did not make the playoffs. I’m fine with that. I’m not happy with it, but I’m fine with it. Because it’s only going to make me stronger and better.”

The Bulls star further explained why he takes the blame:

“I wasn’t consistent enough. I had good games, average games, decent games and some terrible games. I don’t want to have terrible and decent games. Average games can get us over the hump. Really good ones can make us win.”
