I’ve all the time wished higher for not solely the town and the franchise, however [Andrew Wiggins], [Karl-Anthony Towns], these are my guys. I root for these guys. Gorgui Dieng. Those are my guys. I am simply hoping they’ll get by this tough patch and all people can get on the identical patch and determine it out. It’s a s–t storm up there.”
“Everything is so god rattling public now,” KG added.
Following an eventful observe on Wednesday, the Timberwolves cancelled yesterday’s observe as Jimmy Butler reportedly held a players-only assembly, through which he expressed to his teammates that he would compete with them and made it identified that his points are with administration, in response to Shams Charania.
