Since Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns played together for the Minnesota Timberwolves for barely more than a season, their feud has been playing out in the open.
However, after Butler’s one and only full season with the Wolves in 2018, when the franchise finally made the playoffs after 14 years.
Tensions between Butler and the team’s other superstar, Minnesota’s Jimmy Butler, soon escalated.
Prior to the 2018-2019 season, Butler demanded a trade and then skipped training camp.
Reportedly, when Butler eventually showed up for work, he yelled at everyone in the locker room and then led the reserves to victory over the starters in a scrimmage.
Soon after, Butler sat down for an interview with Rachel Nichols, during which he ripped into Towns and fellow Wolves rookie Andrew Wiggins. A short while after that, he was shipped off to the Philadelphia 76ers in a deal.
Karl-Anthony Towns Thanks Jimmy Butler for Time with Timberwolves: ‘Appreciate You’
After playing in just 10 games in his second season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jimmy Butler was transferred.
Despite the fact that things weren’t always peachy between the two players, Karl-Anthony Towns is grateful for the time they spent together as teammates.
Towns answered, “I really appreciate it, Jimmy.” “No matter, f—k it, we didn’t agree. Actually, we don’t have to. However, did you happen to notice something? On the court, we were able to achieve victory.
As a result of our efforts, the Wolves have a fighting shot of making the postseason. That’s exactly what we did. Thankful.”
Despite the fact that the Timberwolves picked Towns with the first overall pick in the 2015 NBA draught, the team has not had a lot of success on the court.
Karl-Anthony Towns to team-up with ex-Timberwolves in All-Star Game
On Thursday, the NBA held the All-Star Game draught, with LeBron James and Kevin Durant acting as captains of their respective teams.
Even though Durant is out for the rest of the season with an injury, that didn’t stop him from putting together a dream team to play in the midseason exhibition.
Because of their draught performance, three former Minnesota Vikings teammates will be bombarded with requests to reminisce about their terrible teams.
Towns had just beaten his man off the dribble and was now dribbling down the court. Crowder, being the reliable defender that he is, moved to absorb the hit for the team.
After seeing who was approaching down the alley, he made a hasty retreat. The answer was obviously no; he couldn’t. Dunk. And-one. Embarrassment.
After that, things progressed in that way. Worse still, Towns clapped in Crowder’s face after the posting, adding insult to injury. He’s really sticking it in the guy’s face.
