Watch: Jimmy Butler sings his favorite Taylor Swift songs

Friday May 1st, 2015

Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler has a penchant for singing along to Taylor Swift, so when Bulls fans had a chance to ask him questions, of course someone had to know what his three favorite T-Swift songs are. 

"I'm gonna get some heat for this one," he says before clearing his throat.

Butler then gives his definitive ranking of Taylor Swift songs:

No. 1: "I Knew You Were Trouble"
No. 2: "Shake It Off"
No. 3: "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"

It's a little suspect to not have "Blank Space" in there, but Butler more than makes up for it with the fact that he doesn't just name the songs, he sings both "Shake It Off" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

Butler's not going to be winning American Idol anytime soon, but it's the effort that counts here.
