Journalist: What kind of an effect did Jimmy Butler have on your game as a mentor and maybe someone you looked to model parts of your game after? Marcus Georges-Hunt: A big effect. I saw it first-hand the way he works to get to where he’s gotten. I see that his work ethic is really what got him to this point. There’s not a day that he doesn’t work. When I ask him questions, he’s always there to answer them. He’s been a lot of help. Him, Jamal, Taj (Gibson), when I ask a question or want to know something, they answer it. They help me out a lot.
That’s why coming to Minnesota was not just a preference for him, but perhaps a necessity. Familiar faces abound, from coaches Tom Thibodeau, Andy Greer, Ed Pinckney and Rick Brunson to teammates Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson. If it doesn’t work here, it will be hard for him to find a more comfortable environment. “I wanted to go somewhere I was familiar with coach,” Rose said last week. “Being here was the perfect position and situation where we have a young team. I believe they don’t know how good they are. I believe the city don’t know how good the team is. We can bring that excitement not only to the team, but to the city. It’s the perfect situation.”
