‘You Can’t Win Without Me’ Jimmy Butler Was Dead Wrong


After news broke that Jimmy Butler wanted out of Minnesota and demanded a trade, he was absent from team practices and other activities. Until his big return.

Butler surprisingly showed up to Minnesota Timberwolves practice and took out his frustrations on his teammates, coaches and general manager Scott Layden. Butler even teamed up with the third string players, to take on the starters in scrimmages, and beat them, while trash-talking them in the process.

At one point during the practice he screamed.


“You f*cking need me. You can’t win without me.”


Then on November 10, Butler finally was traded. The Wolves traded him to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Justin Patton, and a future 2nd round pick. It turns out that Jimmy Butler couldn’t have been more wrong with his statement as the Wolves have played better ever since.



After their 4-9 start with Jimmy Butler on the roster, they have gone 5-2 without him and Karl-Anthony Towns looks like a superstar again, all of a sudden.
