Are you tired yet? Let me help.

Here’s the Timberwolves plot twist that scoopmonger Shams Charania had before anyone else: Jimmy Butler led a players-only meeting today, because suddenly there are “signs pointing to him staying with the franchise into the regular season,” signs that were less visible when Butler spent yesterday’s practice defecating on these same players.

Stay tuned for the answers to none of these questions, and man this dude Jimmy Butler isn’t even all that fun to watch. At least we’ve reached the Gorgui Dieng Threatening Reporter phase of their meltdown.
