Paul George sides with Timberwolves’ Jimmy Butler: ‘I’m on Jimmy’s side’

New, comments

The Wolves’ Butler has made headlines with his outburst against his teammates; here is what PG thinks about the situation.

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Minnesota Timberwolves Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Amidst it all, one must wonder how other players perceive the situation. Paul George has a response.

“I’m on Jimmy’s side.”

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?
