Jimmy Butler’s phone-number reveal was either a stunt, or he has an insane voicemail message


At his introductory press conference with the Timberwolves today, Jimmy Butler revealed his cell phone number – 773-899-6071 – and told his critics to call him directly.

I tried and got an error message, but Joon Lee of Bleacher Report got through:

Butler’s voicemail message:

Jimmy Butler. Sorry I couldn’t get to the phone, but leave your name and number, and I’ll hit you back. If you’ve got any beef, definitely leave a message.

Butler has to be a little crazy to make the journey he has, but, “If you’ve got any beef, definitely leave a message”? That almost had to be orchestrated as part of his press conference answer.
