Video: Jimmy Butler yells ‘what the f— was that?’ at Taj Gibson’s terrible full-court shot attempt
Over the years, Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Jimmy Butler has given NBA fans plenty of entertaining moments on and off the court. On Wednesday night, during the Timberwolves’ game against the L.A. Clippers at Staples Center, Butler added another funny moment to his collection.
As time was about to expire before the half with the Timberwolves leading the Clippers, 62-49, Butler’s teammate in power forward Taj Gibson attempted a one-handed shot from full-court that didn’t come close to the basket. Jimmy Butler’s quick NSFW response to Gibson’s terrible shot attempt, which was captured by ESPN’s broadcast, can be viewed below in a video tweeted by Def Pen Hoops.

If you are able to read lips, Butler definitely yelled “what the f— was that??” in the direction of Gibson, who ran off the court to the locker room while laughing over the whole situation.
Taj Gibson must’ve had flashbacks to March of last season. When he was a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, he drilled a one-handed shot from beyond half-court against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson, who are both in their first season with the Timberwolves, were also teammates on the Chicago Bulls for the former’s first six seasons in the NBA. It’s always a good thing when players are able to joke around with their teammates like that.
