Bulls to watch Super Bowl in Carolina, Butler to root for the Broncos

The Bulls will be in Carolina Panthers country to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, but at least one of them will be rooting heavily for the Denver Broncos.

Chicago plays the Hornets on Monday, so the team's off day will have them watching the big game in Charlotte. And Jimmy Butler will be rocking an orange jersey thanks to his close friendship with Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.

"It means a lot to me, man," Butler told ESPN.com of seeing Thomas in the Super Bowl. "That's like a brother to me. All the hard work that I've seen him doing every time I've talked to him over the summer, he's always working. I think he's going to be huge in this game and I know they're going to come out on top."
