Jimmy Butler is Still Throwing Shade at Wolves Players During 76ers Presser
It wouldn’t be a day in the media without something Jimmy Butler. And if it’s not the Timberwolves trolling Jimmy on Twitter, it’s Butler throwing shade back.
Because Buckets needs to have the final word — every time.
Butler was finally traded from the Wolves earlier this week, ending up at the 76ers, for a trade package including Robert Covington and Dario Saric. In his first press conference as a member of the Philadelphia franchise, Butler made sure he set aside some time to fire some shots at his former teammates.

Butler claims that, unless the Timberwolves players weren’t upfront about how they felt, his actions didn’t create too big of a rift within the team.
We all know that it did have an effect — He’s blatantly calling them bitches for not speaking up.
He hasn’t shied away from challenging or confronting his teammates in the past and clearly doesn’t intend to stop now that he’s been traded. Look out Markelle!
