Jimmy Butler requested a trade out of Minnesota after growing unhappy with the Timberwolves last month. Since then, he hadn't reported to Wolves practice or participated in preseason games until Wednesday. And, oh, it was apparently quite the scene.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Butler reported to practice on Wednesday and challenged everyone — the front office, the coaches, the players. It sounded insane.
And there was this: He took on the starters in a scrimmage with the bench players and won!
The NBA world was all there for the news and wanted more details.

Everything is fine, T-Wolves. Either way, the NBA remains the best.
