Jimmy Butler is known for going hard at practice. We had the famous Jimmy Butler/Timberwolves debacle where he teamed up with third-stringers to whoop the starters and then berated GM Scott Layden. Butler also allegedly “aggressively challenged” Sixers coach Brett Brown during his stint in Philly. The man goes hard with his practice sessions.
