Jimmy Butler practices with Twolves today!!

Per Woj, Jimmy Butler practiced with his Minnesota Timberwolves teammates today. What a sh*t show.........

Unless Glen Taylor is reneging on his mandate to trade Butler before the season starts..... you gotta think that something is going to happen to Thibs shortly.

Any chance the team can let bygones be bygones? There is so much drama surrounding this situation that you have to think their W/L record suffers due to the chemistry issues. Irregardless of their collective talent

All this is per ESPN.

Jimmy sounds like such a PRICK!!!!!

What happened to this guy? Butler's seeming more & more like a culture killer & I would be very hesitent to pony up 5yr max money to him after the year.

Why in the hell can't he just show up, do his work, and be a professional? Unless he thinks this will help him get moved faster, he's destroying his long term value with each reported outburst like this......

Dang I knew I was forgetting

Dang I knew I was forgetting one. For some reason I made up a memory when I was younger that it happened during a game and I saw it on tv

Trade the man

Thibs had an offer, and pulled a WEAK move asking for more at the last second.

I have no sympathy for the Wolves. You had an opportunity to get a good player and a draft pick back. Let the fireworks begin.

If I were the Heat I would

If I were the Heat I would reduce my offer.

No one else is willing to trade for Butler. Not because he isn't a good player but trading for him basically means you have to give up assets and commit to signing him to 5 years and 190M. That's to much for him at his age and mileage. By the 5th year of that deal he'll be 34/35 making 40M. I expect Butler to follow the path of other Thibs players and be washed up by 32.

If this is true then there

If this is true then there should be no team trading for him at all. What is he thinking? He is acting like he is the GOAT and last time I checked Thibs still believed he can convince Butler to stay there and a few days later Butler screams at anyone and everything during his first practice?

What a jerk and a clown, this is Rick James territory.

To be fair they do in fact

To be fair they do in fact need him to be the team they want to be. Unless by some Miralce Wiggins & Towns grow up. With Butler they were the three seed at 37-22. With out him they were 10-13. And if he didn’t come back at the tail end of the regular season they would’ve likely missed out on the playoffs.

Still wild behavior lol.

Okay this will probably sound crazy

Is any of what Jimmy said NOT TRUE?

The Wolves have missed the playoffs for nearly a decade, and only sneaked in because they Maximized Jimmy’s talent alongside the Team they had in place...

If and When he leaves, they’ll be back in the Lottery

If he came at Andrew Wiggins, well didn’t AW’s brother praise Jesus when he heard The Wolves were trading Butler? Now Andrew ain’t keeping that same energy when he sees Jimmy? I’m not surprised, that boy is soft as Charmin Tissue

KAT should just kick Jimmys ass if He’s man enough, this is Butler &$#%#[email protected]! On your team KAT, grow a pair

Jimmy pulling Kobe tricks

Hey Jimmy, you're a great player. But you can't just talk trash to these kids and act like you've won a championship or something and brag about what it takes to win. At least Kobe won 3 championships before he talked trash to guys like Smush Parker or Kwameeeeee Brown.

Butler

They should suspend him right now for conduct detrimental to the team. He's under contract and what he's doing is wrong.

If Towns and Wiggs

Have that in them, they'll probably wanna take a rematch and kick butlers ass, let's wait for the second episode of this practices, well if not, I think they need to grow up, they cannot compete mentally wiht those great players, this is just jimmy schooling them, how can they compete mentally with the likes of russ and others if great players are doing this to them. I question their intensity

Proven vs unproven...

The T-wolves in a hard spot: Build around KAT+Wiggins due to Age and potential or Butler with being Proven...

Personally I think Butler has more heart and two way skills than both Wiggins and Towns but that is just my opinion.

As for who to keep and who to build around that is all up to personal opinion.

I think you would get a whole lot more for KAT and Wiggins than Butler right now due to him cratering his value, so personally I would trade one or both and build around Butler as long as you had him locked up longterm...

I would Trade Wiggins for Middleton straight trade as long as Middleton was extended or open to resigning in Minny.

KAT I would hold off but personally I think he would get you a lot so I would trade him for one of these 3 deals:

A.D for Towns and Diengs deals. You have to chuck in Dieng to make $ work this season due to Towns deal probably kicking in next season...

Towns+ someone else for Drummond and Blake straight trade. Two vets that are semi young that would fit with Butler and Middleton

Towns+ someone for Kawhi leonard and Danny green straight trade. Puts you in full win now mode but also gives you cap room if Kawhi bails...

All of these 3 deals net you at least an allstar level player back...

But imagine any of these starting lineups

A.D,Taj, Butler,Middleton,Teague that isn't a horrible starting lineup

Drummond,Blake,Butler Middleton,Teague

Taj,Kawhi,Butler,Middleton,Teague...

They would all have length and reasonable offensive options...

However most likely what will happen is Butler will try force a trade for a bag of Doritos lol..Netting the T-wolves something similar to the Cousins Pelicans deal...

Count how many times Butler says Me or I in the Post practice

ESPN interview --- He wants Out of Minnesota so he Publicly Burned it to the Grizound in Practice

Anyone who thinks that's a sign of Leadership I'm Sorry that don't work in the Real World

Jimmy Butler is a Cancer & he just proved it Again

Rajon Rondo called Butler out in Chicago for pulling this childish Bull Ish

Lemme explain something & people who have struggled in life will back me up on this --- you Never Really know someone until you observe them when they do NOT get what They Want

Do they Throw a Tantrum & make it ALL about them? Or do they work it out like an adult, Communicate, try your best to Look it the situation from the Other point of view??? B/c THAT is Leadership

What Butler did yesterday was the Equivalent of a 30 y/o man acting like a 5 y/o who threw himself on the floor & held his breath in a Tantrum threatening that if He dont get His way then No One is going to be Happy - I am sorry that is Unacceptable

Exactly

This isn't about whether or not Jimmy's opinion of the team was correct or not. Jimmy was throwing a hissy fit about not being traded, and used yesterday's practice as a means to denegrate the organization. Completely unacceptable.

Who the hell does Jimmy Butler think he is?? His superstar 'diva' act is absolutely ridiculous. Then he goes on TV to say he just wants to win??? His initial preferred destinations were the largest markets in the US, including Brooklyn & New York!!! What have those franchises accomplished of late?? Lol.... what a joke.

Those coaches who said yesterday's practice was the best session of the year were completely taken for a ride. Jimmy had no intentions of making that a productive scrimmage. He was out to humiliate & embarrass. He knew the team would be shook with him showing up late & checking himself in like that. That was a crazy awkward situation that Jimmy had time to prepare for.... his younger less-experienced teammates did not.

Butler is a very good player, arguable top 10-15 in peak form. But IMO he's becoming a depreciating asset in front of our eyes with his antics. Can't stand this guy anymore.

A poster on this site told me

A poster on this site told me Jimmys a weirdo. Said back in the day Noah used to make fun of him all the time lol. He would be playing stuff like Taylor Swift or Garth Brooks on his phone and the guys would clown him. Hes always been an odd guy and tough person to get along with it just never came out until Rondo brought it to the media, which was in defense of his teammates after Jimmy badmouthed them.

Surely with all the talk

Surely with all the talk about the dynamic between KAT/Wiggins and Butler then one of the senior pros should take charge of the locker room and say it stops here. Also I do wonder if Thibs prefers Butler as a player to KAT and Wiggins plus Butler has got a lot of old team mates there so it is effectively a former Bulls clique on the team.

But really a Gibson, Teague or D-Rose needs to step in and say it ends here and we all knuckle down and pull together otherwise Butler will walk, Thibs could be out, KAT might not sign extension etc.
