Reaction to Rubio getting checked by Teague

The internet reacts to the cheap shot by Jeff Teague on Ricky Rubio.

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Ricky Rubio still resides deep in the heart of most Minnesota Timberwolves fans which is why it immediately was awkward when Rubio got slammed out of bounds by a cheap shot courtesy of Jeff Teague. Jeff Teague sent the ex-Minnesota point guard flying into bench and we had some extracurriculars.

Jimmy Butler reacted by going on twitter for the first time in two years and saying this.

Then Butler doubled down HARD.

So how did everyone react ... ?

Classic Teague.

What a moron. Thanks Teague. Glad we are paying you 19m a year as a veteran to pull **** like that.

Also, that’s gotta be a reaction to being compared to Ricky all year. What an ***hole move.

sorta bizarre play as teague has never really been that kind of player. really bad look for him there

Teague has always been that type of player, which is (one reason) why Timberwolves fans didn’t want him

seriously, can we have Rubio back yet? You guys have Mitchell now, so please just give him back. You can even have Jeff ****ing Teague (as he’s not-so-affectionately known around CanisHoopus).

Teague just jealous of the Rubibro love

from all of the Wolves fans who want Rubio and not Teague – so he hotheads it out on Rubio. Classless.

My team is better than yours (at least on the interwebs)
