So the news has sunk in: Jimmy Butler‘s playing for the Timberwolves!
The fan reactions, the notifications, and the like have settled down.
Timberwolves Twitter feels like a ghost town again, patiently waiting for the next Timberwolves event, but the conversations between Timberwolves fans continue in private.
Ever wondered what’s behind the scenes?
So sit back, relax, and enjoy:
Me: Jimmy butler!!!!!!!!
Austin: Absolutely! Gonna miss pre-injury Zach, though. But who knows if pre-injury Zach is what the Bulls are getting??
Me: I just think of it like this: Butler’s a better version of lavine. Either way we’re gonna be gooood
Austin: Patton look solid as well. Get a Towns lite vibe. This could be the best Timberwolves squad in Wolves history next year.
Me: good pt. I like the way patton dunks! He’s a solid backup once Jordan Hill‘s contract expires
Austin: I thought I read somewhere that hill was a team option. I wonder what’s going on with Ricky Rubio? I hope he stays.
Me: oh, even better! We signed Jordan Hill, and he didn’t play a game for us. i don’t recall exactly.
Me: but I feel like ricky [will] prob gets traded. Thibs is retooling the roster
Me: you’re starting to see his guys come in
Austin: Jeff Teague?
Me: OHH I like that!
Me: you know teague’s going to play solid minutes. most likely off the bench
Me: but that would be a good replacement for shabazz
Austin: I wonder if the addition of Jimmy Butler was enough for Andre Iguodala to take a reasonable deal to sign here??
Me: now that we got butler, we don’t need to iggy
Me: he’s gonna be an overpaid veteran
Austin: Who’s behind Andrew Wiggins?
Me: I want vince carter!
Me: you’re definitely gonna sign him on the cheap
Me: he’s what…like 40?
Austin: OMG. Yes…
Me: bring in nick young too
Me: and you got a couple of sharpshooters off the bench
Austin: Oh man. This is finally it. If Rubio goes, this really signals the end of an age. The jerseys and arena will just be the broom sweeping up the last 13 years
Me: let’s go the playoffs already!
Me: someone on twitter said we’re at best the 6th seed
Me: i was like so what???
Me: we’re making the playoffs
Me: get outta there!
Austin: I’ll take sixth
Follow Austin on Twitter. He’s a diehard Timberwolves fan, and a great dad!
Go Timberwolves! Get your howl on.
