On Wednesday, Jimmy Butler made headlines for not only showing up to Timberwolves' practice, but dominating the practice and verbally challenging everyone, from teammates to the team's GM.

Butler requested to be traded from Minnesota back in September, but on Thursday something happened that nobody could have seen coming.

Everyone assumed Butler would be traded before the start of the season, but according to this latest report, it looks like he'll start the season with the Timberwolves and won't be sitting any games.

Butler loves the game of basketball and above all else, he's a competitor, but it's still surprising that to us and the whole basketball world that he could actually be suiting up with Minnesota to start the season.
