Anthony Edwards called out Jimmy Butler for going check-to-chest with him following an exchange during Tuesday's game. Butler grabbed the ball from Edwards' arms after the second-year wing of the Minnesota Timberwolves had been called for traveling. Edwards took exception and pushed Butler in the back.
“He ain’t finna fight nobody out there,” Edwards said. “All that walking up on each other, that’s stuff for the birds, man. I ain’t about to fight. I don’t get into all that. That [expletive] be fake.”
Butler has been a number of similar incidents over the years.
