Jimmy Butler's locker in Philadelphia is stuffed with shoes of all colors and styles. He brought a special pair with him for his return to Minnesota.
The bottom of the shoes say, "You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain," which is certainly fitting for his first game in Minnesota since being traded in November.
Timberwolves fans didn't forget the messy end to Butler's time in Minnesota. The reception for Butler when he was introduced as a starter before the game was predictable.
Butler has already assumed the role of fourth-quarter hero on a few occasions in Philadelphia, but it certainly looks like he's lived long enough to see himself become the villain in Minneapolis.
