Did you or someone you know try calling Jimmy Butler on Thursday?
During Butler’s press conference with his new team, he gave out his digits by saying, “Whoever has anything to say to me feel free 773-899-6071.” I can’t imagine how many tens of thousands of people called and assumed it wasn’t his real number since they didn’t get a response but apparently one guy did.
Butler posted a video of him face timing with a fan (about Carmelo Anthony) with this caption: Taking all calls and y’all thought it was a game.
The newest member of the Minnesota Timberwolves also had some fun chatting with players from the Vikings and Twins.
