After Jimmy Butler spent his Wednesday punking the Timberwolves like he was Ashton Kutcher in an MTV episode, initial reports from Thursday indicated that Butler was following up his peculiar practice performance with a seemingly more positive approach:
Now, before anyone starts Tiger Woods fist-pumping their way around their house, here’s a quick message from this article’s unofficial sponsor, Lee Corso:

As you’ll see below, according to at least three members of the Wolves organization, the proverbial
come-to-Jesus come-to-Jimmy meeting did not occur.

Now, before digging a grave and burying this story as fake-news, we have another public service announcement from Mr. Corso:
Amazingly, according to Rachel Nichols, the ESPN personality who held the face-to-face interview with Butler on Wednesday, the artist known as Mr. Buckets is saying that the players-only meeting did occur.

Unreal. This entire saga continues to pump out curveballs at a higher rate than baseball’s postseason.
Anywho, at this particular time, as for whether or not a meeting of any sorts occurred, who the hell knows? Not me. That’s for damn sure.
In conclusion, if this entire rollercoaster ride has you feeling frustrated, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Even the normally mild-mannered Gorgui Dieng appears to be a little pissy:
I like that intensity.
You heard the man, Dane. Keep his name out of your mouth.
