It’s because when Jimmy and KAT were beefing and Jimmy was forcing his way out, Jimmy set up an interview with Rachel Nichols to talk about all this drama.

Then when Jimmy and KAT first played eachother after Jimmy forced his way out, they got into a minor altercation and TV caught KAT saying “Why don’t u call Rachel, &$!#&”

EDIT: Holy shit my highest comment. I just want to take my 1 hour of fame to get a very personal message across: Fuck Jimmy Butler.

u/TossingTurnips Timberwolves Nov 25 '21

Then when Jimmy and KAT first played eachother after Jimmy forced his way out, they got into a minor altercation and TV caught KAT saying “Why don’t u call Rachel, &$!#&”

IIRC, that was last year, when the Heat won in the last meeting of the two teams.

Not when they first played each other after he asked out. The first time they played each other was like 3 years ago when Jimmy was on the sixers.

This, 100%. It’s amusing to watch Reddit psychologists try to diagnose Butler as someone who can’t handle adversity, a man who went from being homeless and the last pick of the first round to making multi-millions and becoming a widely known figure in the NBA. And this is grossly simplifying his life story too, he’s been through much more.

That's with the Vikings too though. The year Adrian Peterson almost broke the rushing record, had a Vikings fan friend talk me into buying season tickets for the Vikings that year. Cost 200 dollars for all the games. As the season progressed so did the 'fans' attendance got better. Twin cities are mostly fairweather fans. I do believe the Loons have some dedicated fans though.

Yeah, the pipeline has been insane in the last 10 years or so for high level college guys with a lot of draft picks thrown in. You’ve had Tyus, Tre, and Gary Trent out of Apple valley, Rashad Vaughn, Daniel Oturu, Matthew Hurt (super highly rated prospect but left duke early and is stuck in the G league), Zeke Nnaji, Holmgren and Suggs out of v, JP Macura who was a stud at Xavier, Freddie Gillespie and Kendall Brown out of east ridge, Tyrell Terry, Royce White (who flamed out), McKinley Wright, Jericho Sims. Minnesota has had a 5 star I think every year for the last 10 years.

Lot of good woman players as well most notably Page Beuckers who’s at UConn now

Minnesota is so starved for any sort of sporting success that we’ll cheer for just about anything. But also HS Basketball is huge in Minnesota, Gary Trent Jr, Paige Bueckers, Jalen Suggs, Chet Holmgren, Tyus and Tre Jones, even Amir Coffey and JP Macura. MN HS hoops is just exciting to watch.

u/Local_Spinach8 Bucks Nov 25 '21

Definitely sounds better than Pitino as a recruiter, and it’s not like it’ll be hard to pass him as an on-court coach either. I’m a Badgers fan, but that could change depending on where I go to college next year and my top two choices are Wisconsin and Minnesota so I am kind of hoping for Minnesota’s success.

Yep, basically my mom's whole side of the family and my mom and my two sisters went/are currently going to Minnesota and they're Vikings fans and I'm the one Packers/Badgers fan because I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life. But now that I might go to Minnesota for college I'm in an awkward spot where I'm kind of a fan of both even though they're big rivals. Next year, though, I'll be hating one of them. Just not sure which one yet

They usually went to Duke before Zags scooped Suggs. That would be frustrating on its own but he gave an interview recently that he planned to go to the U and was so put off by Pitino he started looking anywhere else.

When I saw that dude get so much camera time, I knew the Suns were gonna lose the finals. He was just too obnoxious to be rewarded by the universe for that behavior.

Jimmy ended the 3rd 5/9 with 16 points, Jimmy finished the game 5/9 with 16 points. After getting into with the fans and ant, Jimmy seemed to lose focus on playing basketball.

Jimmy was trying to pull off a Ben Simmons couple of years back in Minnesota (wanted to be traded, skipped practices, talked bad about young Wolves work ethic). Then one day he came to the practice unannounced, reportedly played with 3rd stringers and won the team that consisted of starters, shouted "y'all need me, you can't win without me", and did an interview with Rachel Nichols one hour later. It was like a scripted play.

I don't think that interview is going to stop being a point of amusement for a while yet.

There's making a point, and then there's just being a drama queen.
