Golub: Controlling the NBA media

Jimmy Butler, the workhouse, the self-made star, doesn’t wanna be in Minnesota.  It’s hard to blame him. Appearing to have all the ingredients for sustained success, this iteration of the Timberwolves has failed to come close to reaching its potential.  Despite the production of all-star unicorn Karl-Anthony Towns, the unmatched natural talent of “Maple Jordan” Andrew Wiggins, and the defensive tenacity of coach Tom Thibodeau, along with Jimmy Buckets, the T-Wolves only managed to snag the eighth seed last year.  When Butler was injured for the last quarter of the season, the team had a losing record.
