I will follow him regardless of team. He is my favorite player in the NBA. I like defense. I like his character. It would be no fun being his teammate. He is all work and sacrifice. So many of the NBA are second generation silver spooners which for the most part they are hard workers, but wiggins and townes are not willing to put the work in to improve their defense. Defense wins. He had no use for Foreman, Paxton, and Fred Hoiberg who are the dumbest people in NBA basketball so after dealing with those liars, Butler is not going to listen to promises about things changing. They will not. I am a big Thibs fan, but he bears some of the responsibility. When Butler went down with knee issues the team hardly were 500, yet he returns and almost single handed defeated a very good Denver team to make the playoffs. In the playoffs Wiggins and Townes were MIA. They could be a very good team if everybody was working hard.....but how do you tell a person who grew up with an NBA dad and is making twenty plus million a year that they have to work harder.......Butler at 13 was by himself and earned everything in his life. He has the deep respect of all in the NBA family as to his work ethic.

I've become a fan too after listening to your praises. He would be my second pick if i were starting a team.

I think it is going to get ugly in Timberwolves territory. Butler knows that it is going to be very difficult to make the playoffs in the West. The Lakers, Dallas, and Phoenix have gotten better. NO is the only playoff team which may have lost assets, but with a super star they will beat the timberwolves. Wiggins and Towns are worthless. They will NEVER make the playoffs without Butler, but I fear that this will damage the Butler brand.......but he is such a good role model it will only be temporary.

It would be great if Miami got Butler. He needs some love from a GM as he has been used and abused by all to date. The Timberwolves will not even be close to making the playoffs unless Rose regains his prowess. The Heat will be top four in the East with Butler, and he makes the all star team and gives a run at the east championship.....which is still very weak despite the blossoming younger players. I cannot wait to the start of the season as I am hooked on NBA basketball.

Thibs is screwing Jimmy. He actually thinks he can manipulate him to play with Wiggins and Towns. I just want to see what the wolves do without Butler....They will not make the playoffs, and all thibs wants is butler churning and burning wins to get in the playoffs........but the truth is he knows that the owner has given him two players who do not play very good defense.

I am intrigued with Houston because I think their weakness has been defense. However, Miami would be a much better choice for just next year, and then going where he wants in free agency, but thibs is really duplicating the betrayal of Paxton and Foreman when they lied to him when he was with the bulls.

Three teams are in the hunt......Clippers, Heat, and Wizards.

Butler does not want to go to Baltimore......that is where a piszed Thibs might send him.

Thibs is being a dick. He needs Butler until the end of the trading deadline to get enough wins to make the playoffs, which he apparently does not believe he can win with his two super stars who disappeared at playoff time. His job is on the line.
