SHARE WATCH: Jimmy Butler ‘loses’ $10,000 bet when student makes shot

Not even Jimmy Butler could defend this student’s shot.

During an event for Kellogg’s to raise awareness about childhood hunger yesterday, the Bulls guard challenged a local Chicago high school student to a bet. Kellogg’s had committed to giving a $10,000 donation to Phoenix Military Academy, and Butler said he would match the donation, if the student could make a three-point shot.

Well, guess what! To paraphrase Bulls announcer Stacey King, “Jimmy G. Butler—the G is for gives.”
