If you've ever wanted to talk to Jimmy Butler directly, now's your chance.
The former face of the Bulls and current Minnesota Timberwolves star was introduced with his new franchise Thursday and had a message for the haterz:
Don't hesitate to reach out. Here's my cell number.

That number is 773-899-6071 and he said his phone was in his back pocket right at that moment.
Butler wants to take responsibility for his actions and his play, so much so that he made the completely unorthodox move to put himself as out there as possible. When you call and get Butler's voicemail, it says "Leave a message if we're beefin'".
There's no way this *doesn't* backfire, right? How could this possibly end well?
It's worth reminding that it doesn't have to be just haterz that reach out. Bulls fans who appreciate all Butler gave to the city of Chicago over the last few years can just send a simple "thank you" text.
Or, you know, if you're hammered at 2 a.m. and want to vent about the Bulls rebuild, here's a perfect outlet.
