Jimmy Butler’s Comments After Drama at Timberwolves Practice Revealed

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler pulled no punches during his return to the team on Wednesday. While the All-Star opted to show up at practice, things didn’t go well, as ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski revealed Butler was “boldly challenging teammates, coaches and front office executives.”

Following the drama, Butler spoke to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols on the situation, per SportsCenter.

Wojnarowski detailed a few of the comments prior to the interview being released, including Butler admitting that “a lot” of the details about his practice explosion were true.

“A lot of it is true,” he said. “I haven’t played basketball in so long. I’m so passionate. I don’t do it for any reason but to compete. All my emotion came out in one time. Was it the right way? No! But I can’t control that when I’m out there competing. That’s raw me, me at my finest, me at my purest. Inside the lines.”
