Bulls Insider Says Mark Wahlberg — of All People — is Responsible for Jimmy Butler Drama
Marky Mark? Really?
Butler is determined to force his way out of the Twin Cities.
After all that’s gone one, it’s beginning to get worse, T-Wolves immortal Kevin Garnett calling it a “s— show.” Not a good look for the entire franchise. Jimmy is the Wolves down from the inside out.

From what we know, Butler’s explosive practice as a result of his stagnating trade request, is Jimmy Butler as we’ve come to know.
But Patrick Reusse, an insider for the Chicago Star-Tribune who has spend countless hours covering the Bulls, Butler’s old team, has an extremely wild take on the drama.
What does he believe is stirring the pot around Butler? His friendship with actor Mark Wahlberg.
“The suggestion was that Jimmy came into the league driven by his underdog status, and that changed a few years later when he started hanging out with Wahlberg and seeing himself as a star,” Reusse said, “The feeling in Chicago was that Butler’s game stopped growing three, four years ago, as his head grew ever larger.”
You heard it here, folks. One of the most controversial and dramatic sagas in recent NBA history is being fueled by Marky Mark.
LMAO, OK bro.
It has nothing to do with the ongoing dispute between Butler and Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns, who Butler alleges don’t work hard to accentuate their talents — which was can all see from the outside.
I want some of whatever Reusse is smoking.
