Well, so much for all of that Jimmy Butler to Miami talk.
It looks like Jimmy let the team know how he feels about everything face to face. So basically, he called out KAT and Wiggins for being soft and not having any heart in front of the team.
Since Minnesota isn’t trading him, then it looks like the team, and the two young stars, agree with him. This could maybe help Minnesota play up to their full potential and possibly improve from their 8 seed last year.
Or, this could end with Jimmy Butler getting jumped. Or he might murder someone. Anxious to see how it’ll all unfold.
