Jimmy Butler wasn’t in a Minnesota Timberwolves uniform for a great deal of his career, but he definitely found a way to make his mark on the franchise. Tom Thibodeau, who coached Butler on both the Chicago Bulls and most recently the Timberwolves, had nothing but good things to say about the 29-year-old shooting guard on Monday’s episode of The Starters. “He helped us change the culture there,” Thibodeau said. “Every year, he’s gotten better. I think he’ll continue to get better, and he brought the best out in people.
If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s this: Butler’s All-NBA, two-way greatness and his volatility make him one of the most compelling figures in this year’s NBA playoffs. The league waits, popcorn at the ready, to see which Jimmy will show up for the Sixers, both for the next couple weeks (or months) and into the summer, when Butler will be among the NBA’s highest-profile free agents. “I’ll be here in Philly for a little bit, and this will be the next chapter,” Butler says. “We have the opportunity to do something special. We know what we can do. We talk about it every single day with the coaches in practice and when we watch ourselves on film. We know what we can do. We know. It’s all about going out there now and supposedly showing the world, even though I highly doubt anyone on this team gives a damn what the world thinks anyway.”
