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.
haven’t used Twitter in years. But yeah Jeff that’s what I like to see. Rubio getting up quick for no reason.— Jimmy Butler (@JimmyButler) March 3, 2018
Then Butler doubled down HARD.
So how did everyone react ... ?

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

Man **** Teague decides to just get kicked out of the game instead of trying to win, real professional you ***hole

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

WTF, F’ing Teague!!!!!!

sorta bizarre play as teague has never really been that kind of player. really bad look for him there
by utahcoyote on Mar 3, 2018 | 12:52 AM
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)
