Former Minnesota Timberwolves player, Jimmy Butler, was introduced as the new member of the Philadelphia 76ers.
Here is what the versatile guard said, per ESPN: “When guys go out there and they know how to play basketball, which everybody on this roster does, it’s all going to fall into place.
I don’t think that anybody is going to step on anybody’s toes. I think everybody still has the same job to do, and everybody’s expected to be the same player that they’ve always been. That’s why I think it’s going to be successful.
I don’t think I’m a bad teammate, but people get whatever they want to say out. I think I’m an incredible human being, teammate, and I will show that to the guys here.”
For his part, the GM of the Sixers, Elton Brand, added: “We have a championship window, and it’s important that we do whatever it takes to capitalize on it.
It was important to us to go get a superstar, to go get some young talent to help make that next step in achieving a championship. [Butler’s] goals match ours and the city of Philadelphia.”
