Hell hath no fury like a disgruntled NBA star.

After demanding a trade out of Minnesota weeks ago, Jimmy Butler has now taken to verbally berating teammates and coaches at Timberwolves’ practice. Butler, who reportedly has been at the center of distrust and frustration within the Minnesota roster, allegedly yelled “you can’t win without me” in practice, and challenged Karl Anthony-Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

Butler played with the bench unit during a scrimmage, and led them to a victory over the starting unit, prompting the outbursts.

With the start of the NBA season just a week away, and the Timberwolves not budging on their high asking price for Butler, the former all-star and all-NBA defender has said he will not forfeit paychecks by sitting out games. Minnesota opens up their season on October 17th against the San Antonio Spurs.
