Credit To The T'Wolves For Welcoming Jimmy Butler Back To Minnesota With The Song 'You're So Vain' And A Rousing Round Of Boos
Pretty good. Prettay, prettaaay good. Never mind the boos, which were inevitable considering Jimmy Butler was one spark short of legitimately setting fire to the facilities in forcing his way out of town, because the score of that reception was very fitting of someone who loves himself some...well...himself. Jimmy Buckets might be selfless in his style and effort, but he's certainly not one to let his dedication to defense go unrecognized, whether he has to be the one to recognize it or not. No one knows that better than the members of Minnesota Timberwolves who were left almost literally licking their wounds after having their entire pack emasculated by a loud lead dog with irritability issues.
Not that there is anything wrong with it, but self-interest (aka vanity) seems to be the fuel on which the NBA is running these days and there are only a handful with more gas in the tank than Jimmy Butler. That's not as much an insult as it is a fact, so credit goes to Minnesota for picking a song with the perfect combination of specificity and spite. At the very least it showed a level of pushback that Karl Anthony Towns definitely did not in getting bullied by a smaller dog with a bigger bite. That, and it was a much, much more fair and funny reaction than jeering the crap out of him as he sat hunched over the court tending to a back ailment...
