Chicago Bulls small forward Jimmy Butler is keeping in shape during the NBA offseason by playing one-on-one against none other than actor Mark Wahlberg, formerly known as "Marky Mark".
The caption with the Instagram photo reads: "Mark Wahlberg didn't stand a chance! I had 100 points, 100 rebounds, 100 steals, 100 blocks, 100 assists. On the way to a 7-6 victory!"
The math may not quite add up, but Butler certainly appears to be passionate about winning, which is good news for Bulls fans this season.
