Jimmy Butler details infamous Timberwolves practice on JJ Redick’s podcast

Jimmy Butler is out here spilling all the details about what happened during his infamous Minnesota Timberwolves practice in October.

Butler hopped on The Ringer’s The JJ Redick Podcast on Tuesday to talk with teammate JJ Redick about what went down during the practice with the Timberwolves where he reportedly ran with the third stringers. During the practice, he also reportedly yelled “you [expletive] need me” at Timberwolves general manager Scott Layden.

Butler talked about how his interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols was scheduled three weeks in advance, simply to talk about what was going on with the Timberwolves.

Along with that, he revealed a detail of the practice that he said no one really knows about.

Here’s a part of the podcast transcript, per The Ringer.

Butler: The most interesting detail of that whole scrimmage that nobody knows: I only shot the ball once.

Redick: Really?

Butler: I only shot the ball one time. I only shot the ball once.

Redick: But every quote coming out of there was like: “Jimmy was getting buckets. He was dominating.”

Butler: Oh, I was dominating, but I only shot the ball once. Dimes, boom, boom, boom. Steals, blocks. I only shot the ball one time.

If what Butler says is true, then that just grows the story of this wild Timberwolves practice. Butler gets buckets – hence his nickname “Jimmy Buckets.” But if he was dominating in other areas of the game, then that just reinforces how much of an all-around player he truly is.
