It's true that Jimmy Butler very well may be public enemy #1 here in Minnesota right now, but last night he pulled of a gesture that proves that he's not entirely bad.
With the Timberwolves stuck out on a West Coast road trip this week, next up a game tonight against the Lakers, it was becoming increasingly difficult for point guard Tyus Jones to fly across the country to see his little brother Tre debut for the Duke Blue Devils against Kentucky. Unable to find a flight that would work properly and get him back to L.A. for the game, Tyus seemed to be out of options.
Then Butler swooped in.
As noted in the video below, Jimmy Butler loaned Tyus a private jet to zip over to Cameron Indoor arena and see the Dukies just clobber the #2 Kentucky Wildcats.
Say what you will about Jimmy because there's a lot to be said, but that's a pretty cool gesture.
