Jimmy Butler gave the world his cell phone number and wants critics to call him

New, comment

Jimmy Butler took an interesting route to address his critics during his introductory press conference with the Timberwolves: He gave the world his phone number.

In case you missed it the number is (773) 899-6071. Don’t bother calling right now, because every time we’ve tried we get a message from Verizon saying it’s unavailable. Probably because the number of an NBA superstar was broadcast live to the entire dang world.

Credit where it’s due: Butler is going to face his critics head-on (or ear-on, as the case may be) but he’s definitely going to need a new phone after this.

UPDATE: Butler actually took at least one FaceTime call!

taking all calls and y'all thought it was a game!
