Butler responds to John Calipari’s ‘bully’ comments

The Score

Former Minnesota Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler didn't take kindly to Kentucky head coach John Calipari telling ESPN's Jackie MacMullen in late-November that the guard bullied ex-Wildcat Karl-Anthony Towns.

On Tuesday, Butler responded to the criticism after his Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Timberwolves.

"I don't think bully is a good word," Butler told MacMullen. "I tell it how it is. Whenever I was in college, I had (Marquette coach) Buzz Williams to tell me how it was. I didn't have a bunch of McDonald's All-Americans like (Calipari) has. So, he can look at it a different way."

Butler didn't stop there, as he said he'll "confront" Calipari should they meet.
