Jeff Teague seems to regret the Minnesota Timberwolves’ decision to trade Jimmy Butler, who is starring for the Miami Heat.
Butler and Teague were teammates on the Timberwolves during the 2017-18 season and for a little bit in 2018-19 before Minnesota honored Butler’s trade request and sent him to the Philadelphia 76ers.
We had it minny smh

Jimmy Butler guided the Timberwolves to the playoffs in 2018 for the first time since 2004. Unfortunately, Butler didn’t like playing with Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. The All-Star called out both players during a heated practice before the 2018-19 season started.
Butler has found a permanent home with the Heat. Unlike in Minnesota, Heat players don’t get offended when Jimmy calls them out because they know he just wants to win and is trying to make others better.
The Timberwolves may never rebound from the Butler trade. He’s one of the best players in the NBA and has the Heat three wins away from the NBA Finals.
