What a power move. I mean I know people are sick of Jimmy Butler, but I’m here for him just going next level and refusing to play. We all know what happened the first day of practice when he screamed good luck winning without him and now they are going to try to do just that.
I’ve said it so many times now, just trade him. You’re not going to get exactly what you want back. But, you need to move on from Butler and start worrying about the guy who you have signed long term in Karl-Anthony Towns. Start working with it as his team. Start building around him instead of Thibs bringing in every former Bulls player.
So we’ll see how long it takes. It’s clear that Butler is now forcing the issue by sitting out. It should only be a matter of time until Minnesota moves on from him. Just take draft picks, young players and start new. Move on from Thibs. Move on from Butler. It’s KAT’s team now. That’s how they need to look at it.
