Jimmy really gave out his phone number at the press conference 😂

Jimmy Butler doesn’t need no Instagram model with a grudge to Tweet out his phone number. He just willing gives it out himself. During his introductory press conference today for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Butler jokingly gave out his phone number in response to one of the reporter’s questions. Butler wasn’t too amused with the media member bringing up the rumors that he isn’t a locker-room guy and that you can’t build a team around him and didn’t really want to address the issue. So instead he gave out his number to everyone and anyone who wanted to call him to question him about it.
Looking back on this now, Butler is probably questioning himself on why he made this decision. I’m sure his PR person has scolded him and the Timberwolves equipment manager has already got him a new phone with a new number. But it wouldn’t hurt to call that number for the odd chance that it is in fact Butler’s phone number and that he hasn’t changed his number yet. Who knows you could be the first person to get an exclusive interview with the newest member of the Timberwolves.
Here’s a few comments people had about Butler giving out his number unprovoked.

Lawyers give out their phone numbers all the time--even put them on billboards. Maybe Jimmy Butler will spark new trend. Better Call Jimmy. https://t.co/0RtUoKVaH8
