Dwyane Wade is no Michael Jordan. In fact, when Wade Friday met reporters for the first time since signing to play for the Bulls, the Chicago native who grew up in southwest suburban Oak Lawn reiterated he, like all the kids, wanted to be like Mike. And the Bulls.

It’s been a steady, if unlikely, climb for Jimmy Butler, one scratch-your-head, is-that-really-Jimmy-Butler moment to the next from a college basketball scholarship to first round pick, if barely, to NBA All-Star, maximum contract and now an Olympian.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg after Saturday’s 108-100 victory over the Houston Rockets was considering the team’s effective play in a near end to end victory.
