Fed up with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins not matching his competitiveness, fed up with the Timberwolves for not trading him yet and apparently fed up with being told he must practice… Jimmy Butler unleashed hell during a scrimmage before the season.
Butler reportedly arrived late, led third-stringers to a win over the starters, talked smack and then left early. The Minnesota practice instantly became legendary.
And we didn’t even realize the full extent of Butler’s showing.
Butler, via The Ringer:
The most interesting detail of that whole scrimmage that nobody knows: I only shot the ball once.
Oh, I was dominating, but I only shot the ball once. Dimes, boom, boom, boom. Steals, blocks. I only shot the ball one time.
That is peak Jimmy Butler. He is so good.
