The Philadelphia 76ers might be calling Thibs to see what the return policy is for Jimmy Butler.
NO RETURNS[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code _builder_version=”3.19.3″]

Every single Timberwolves fan who got a notification on this smiled when they read it. You can have him Philadelphia. And I couldn’t be happier that this asshole landed in your trash city. If any city deserved Jimmy Butler’s bitch-ass, it’s you. A trash human being for a trash city.
You had a core that had the potential to grow into something really special. Then, you forgot how to “trust the process” and traded two of your best locker room guys for the WORST locker room guy in the entire NBA.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code _builder_version=”3.19.3″]
“Oh come on Eric, that’s just the type of guy that Jimmy is. He’s going to challenge those around him including coaches and teammates.”
Stop. I’ve heard it all before. I walked in your shoes. I was a Jimmy apologist. Just read how bad it seems to be right now in Philly. These come straight out of Woj’s article:[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.19.3″]
Butler has been vocal in his contesting of Brown and his system, including a recent film session in Portland that some witnesses considered “disrespectful” and beyond normal player-coach discourse.
While a source close to Butler contends that his intense, direct style can come off as combative as he is trying to make clear his viewpoints, Butler’s sluggish assimilation into the Sixers environment is causing some concern about his long-term viability and fit with the organization, league sources said.
Brown had already spent significant time working on the sometimes-tenuous relationship between Simmons and Embiid, and those challenges have been compounded by the urgency to introduce Butler into the Sixers’ dynamic.
I just can’t get over the fact that this team already had issues with locker room chemistry before bringing Jimmy into the fold. No wonder why this team has been in the gutter deeper than even the Timberwolves since Allen Iverson departed.
But again, I don’t want to let Jimmy Butler out of this blog without slandering his bullshit. There is no excuse to act like Jimmy Butler acts. I don’t care how good you are or what your upbringing was. You don’t act like a selfish asshole in a team sport like basketball. His immaturity and lack of professionalism
Jimmy is no longer that hard-working kid who made himself out of nothing. He is a selfish arrogant asshole who will never win. You don’t win with Jimmy Butler as one of your featured players.
Oh, and how does Jimmy want the offense to change? He wants it to go back in
Butler has expressed a desire to teammates to play in more traditional pick-and-roll and isolation sets, rather than trying to find his place in the Sixers’ free-flowing offense, league sources said.
Remind you of anything????
