You really can’t make this stuff up.
Every time you think the Wolves cannot top themselves in this terribly dysfunctional and embarrassing Jimmy Butler Trade Saga, well, refresh that Twitter timeline! There’s a good chance even more gasoline is being poured on top of this historic dumpster fire start to the 2018-19 season.
Today’s juicy news: Jimmy Butler called a players-only meeting to air grievances. This, of course, comes after his pre-planned tirade at practice yesterday which was followed by an exclusive and extremely orchestrated interview with ESPN where he challenged Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, and the entire organization.
Well that’s not it, folks. Don’t be silly now. We’ve Only Just Begun.
About that players-only meeting that happened today...
Jeff Teague has tweeted once in the past year but with all of the chaos surrounding the team he took to social media to dispute the report. Yes, the same guy that repeatedly told the media about how he quit dunking last season, only to throw down nine dunks during his first year in Minnesota, shows up to break his word again.
THE CROWD GOES WILD AS TEAGUE POSTERIZES THE REPORT!
@ShamsCharania it wasn’t no players meeting you just made that up bro y’all gotta relax with this fake news— Jeff Teague (@Teague0) October 11, 2018
Teague throws another jam down with authority. Former point guard, and now assistant coach with the Wolves, John Lucas, followed up with an assist.
Who knows what will happen next. Maybe owner Glen Taylor will come out of hiding and finally do something about this entire fiasco. Stay tuned. The next episode of It’s Always Gloomy In Wolvesdom should be airing shortly.
