Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler is a fantastic basketball player, but he might be a questionable friend. Butler proved as much Sunday, when he posted a video where he participated in a trust fall gone wrong.
Consider this a warning: If you’re friends with Jimmy Butler, don’t let him talk you into a trust fall!
Jimmy Butler drop friend during trust fall
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) August 19, 2018
Butler completely let his friend down … literally. As his friend falls back, Butler is supposed to catch him. Instead, Butler decides to pull his hands away and take a step back. His buddy tumbles to the ground.
Is Jimmy Butler a bad friend?
We now have two instances where Butler has been a less-than-ideal pal in the same week. Days before this trust fall fail, Dwyane Wade chastised Butler for leaving a questionable comment on an Instagram photo of Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union-Wade.
If there’s a silver lining here, it’s that Butler hasn’t betrayed the trust of any current teammates. Everyone else should be on high alert around him for now, though.
