As objectively awesome as a Lil Jon remix of 'Turn Down for What' and the Christmas song 'Jingle Bells' is, there's a time and a place for everything. And last night while preparing to shoot a technical foul free throw against the Wizards, Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler had heard enough.
The Bulls All-Star stopped his dribble at the line and passed the ball back to the referee. He had a request. Turn that darn music off.
They granted his wish, so he got the ball back from the ref and sank the free throw.
Watch the whole sequence here:
Turn it down for what: Jimmy Butler had the United Center staff turn off a Lil Jon remix of 'Jingle Bells' before a free throw last night 😂: pic.twitter.com/SLTW3GQi8A— NBC Sports Wizards (@NBCSWizards) December 22, 2016
Could you tell what was going on? The broadcast team at CSN Chicago mentioned it on air:
Actually, on second listen, that song is super obnoxious. Jimmy didn't like the song and it's hard to blame Jimmy.
The United Center should just stick to playing Madonna:
