Butler requested a trade from the Timberwolves a few weeks ago, and reportedly told the team he wants to be traded by Friday. I'm going to be honest: If your No. 1 priority isn't winning, people can tell.

"I think that's the part everybody doesn't see", Butler said.

The report also stated that several players spoke up during the meeting, but that it was mainly Butler doing the talking.

One of Jimmy Butler's teammates appears to have had enough of his antics. "I don't think it's distracting me, but maybe it is distracting some other guys".

During Wednesday's practice, Butler reportedly "left teammates and coaches largely speechless" as he dominated the gym in every way.

"So all of my emotion came out at one time".

Jimmy Butler #23 of the Minnesota Timberwolves talks to the media following Game Three of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs against the Houston Rockets on April 21, 2018 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. That's raw me - me at my finest, me at my purest - that's what you're gonna get inside the lines. Butler had been away from the team while the Wolves were in California for a preseason bonding trip. ESPN reported that Butler verbally challenged players, coaches and even general manager Scott Layden in the practice, during which Butler dominated the team's scrimmages even when going up against stars like Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

But if Butler remains in Minnesota, expect more of the same sentiment behind his actions.

A report emerged on Tuesday that the day before, he met with Tom Thibodeau for a third time to make it clear his desire to be traded. "I'm so passionate", said Butler, 29, a four-time All-Star who was traded to Minnesota before the 2017-18 season. Most of the players knew the invectives were directed at Towns and Wiggins, league sources said. A deal that would've shipped him to the Heat almost came to fruition over the weekend, but those talks fell apart despite the Heat's efforts to build a package around young players and draft picks.
