One Instagram commenter asked the question on everyone’s mind:

rvelky: @kmcgleam is he rocking Jimmy’s haircut.

With Butler surpassing Rose this season as the Bulls’ best player, it makes sense that Derrick might be grasping at any sort of magic that Jimmy may possess — even if it’s higher hair.

Rose’s hair also has some similarities to Chicago area product Iman Shumpert.

The Bulls’ window is closing, and they will need Butler and Rose to be the best versions of themselves if they are to have any chance of toppling LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the upcoming season.
