VIDEO // Jimmy Butler Plays Multiple Possessions With His Hand Down His Shorts
Minnesota Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler hasn’t shied away from stirring up controversy lately. From demanding a trade to sitting out games because he hasn’t been traded yet to getting booed by his team’s own fans, he’s doing damage to his reputation. And his latest signature moment was something more discreet, yet plainly bizarre.
Yikes. While he was probably trying to stop the bleeding on his hand, he should’ve focused more on the game than a small cut. Jimmy Butler is a good basketball player, but he’s not good enough to beat much of anyone while using just one hand.
This is just the latest in a long list of questionable actions he’s taken since demanding a trade. And there’s sure to be more.
At this point, it feels like Butler doesn’t even care anymore. The Timberwolves really need to work out a trade soon, because his antics are only lowering his trade value while he injects more and more chaos into the Minnesota organization. In the next game, maybe he’ll play a few possessions with both hands in his shorts. Perhaps he’ll try kicking or headbutting the ball into the basket. Anything is possible with this guy.
