We know Jimmy Butler logged way too many minutes while playing in Chicago. Unfortunately for the man known as Jimmy Buckets, he’s still getting worked to death in Minnesota.
Jimmy had a LOT to say, but his view on minutes was – for me – the most revealing when it comes to why he’s trying to control some of his on-court situation (discusses need for younger players to get more run and confidence) https://t.co/hJRA9seg8z pic.twitter.com/WSRy96TME5

Butler, currently ranked fourth in the NBA at 36.1 minutes per game, promptly threw a shot across head coach Tom Thibodeau’s bow.
When pressed by Amick, Jimmy Butler insinuated that his teammates should be defraying his playing time, which has shot up to 39 minutes over the past five games.
Just another sign that Jimmy wants out. How much longer can this hostage negotiation continue.
Time for everyone to move on.
