You may have been following the topsy-turvy adventures of the Minnesota Timberwolves and one Jimmy Butler. If not, here’s the quick primer. This would all be terrifically surprising if not for the fact that it’s Minnesota, and then it begins to make a little bit of sense.

Interestingly, PG does think both Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins have that “It” factor, but clearly thinks, as does Butler obviously, that they are not living up to their potential.
What do you think?
Was Butler right in calling out his teammates?
