Is Jimmy Butler a Pat Riley type of player — ASK IRA

Thibodeau has said the team will try to make Butler happy, but has cautioned throughout the process that Minnesota will only do a deal that it deems is good for Minnesota. "Yeah, that's who am I", he said.

With Minnesota's ower prepared to move on from his disgruntled All-Star, Miami emerged as the first legitimate suitor for Butler. What does this mean for the Los Angeles Clippers?

When Butler initially demanded a trade from the land of Lake Minnetonka the Lakers weren't on his preferred list of teams. Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka should be thankful.

Butler played three seasons at Marquette before leaving for the National Basketball Association draft.

We can not let Jimmy Butler talk fans and young basketball players into thinking that being "overly emotional" is a true quality of a leader, it's not being able to control your emotions that makes you immature and someone who can not lead others. But there's more to it.

Guardiola tells Man City players: Blame me for Liverpool pen
Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino only had two touches in the City penalty area - and only 21 in total. Hopefully he will be here for a long time with us, so he will go many times to Anfield.

Butler was reportedly vociferous and emotional at times in targeting Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. They don't want to win, according to Butler.

As ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski revealed, Butler's return to practice was filled with all kinds of excitement.

Butler participated in multiple intrasquad scrimmages, where he joined the bench units against the starters and went out of his way to challenge the team's two young stars, Towns and Wiggins, league sources said. The Wolves would have been in a position to offer Butler a five-year extension worth $190 million next July. Magic Johnson should say thanks, but no thanks, should the opportunity arise.

Butler has certainly proven that he can hang with just about anyone in the league, and he remains unapologetic about his passion at practice throughout the interview.

Once again, Jimmy Butler is selfish and an actor, it's that simple.
