After The Towel Waving Incident In Golden State, I Can't Help But Wonder What Else Jimmy Butler Can Do To Make His Team Grow A Pair
I know the main takeaway from this abjectly preposterous visual should be "hey, Jimmy Butler is kind of a huge asshole, huh?". Unfortunately, we already knew that just as well as he did when he intentionally took his attempt at tormenting the Timberwolves into trading him to the next level by celebrating his own team's loss while seated amongst them.
That's why I am instead left wondering how not one person on that bench lifted even a "check please"-esque finger as he did one of the top 5-7 most disrespectful things you can do to another human being. When you whip a towel inches from the face of other people, you're essentially refusing to acknowledge them as living entities who are deserving of personal space, never mind doing so when those people happen to be the same people whose failures you're fawning over. That's why I can't help but think that Jimmy Butler's latest attempt at the upping the ante in his emasculation of an NBA organization says more about said organization than it does him.
At this rate, NYE will come and go and the ball will drop before those of any of his teammates' do. Like, how much of a jerk-off does one have to be to coax pride out of a group of professional athletes? Don't get me wrong, I'm thoroughly enjoying the process of finding out, but I'm pretty sure I'm only speaking for myself and literally everyone else who has no financial or emotional investment in the success of the Minnesota Timberwolves. At some point they have to put up a fight, but if you let someone repeatedly whisk wind alongside your face as if they are pleased with watching you lifelessly wait out the end of another miserable work night then I'm not sure there's all that much you won't let someone do in denying you dignity.
