We all watched Jimmy Butler’s smile beam across his face as he was introduced as a member of the 76ers today.
But how did things go at the introductory press conference for the three former Sixers in Minnesota?

Just look at Dario’s face.
Yesterday, we learned about the teary-eyed goodbye Saric had with Brett Brown when the trade was made, and today, we get this photo from the press conference. He looks miserable. Also, it’s not like we hunted for a bad photo, only to see him smiling moments later. This is the photo the Timberwolves chose to tweet out on their main account.
Here’s another look.
We’ve seen this before with Jahlil Okafor dropping the jersey and with Joel Embiid’s face on draft night. Both of those turned out to be non-stories, but what if Dario is truly upset to go from Philadelphia, where he moved to from another country, to Minnesota?
Also, Robert Covington is having a little trouble removing the word “process” from his vocabulary.

While we’re looking forward to seeing Jimmy Butler take the court for the Sixers, some fans will have an eye on Minnesota to see how the former Sixers are doing.
Make sure to circle Jan. 15 on your calendar for Minnesota’s only game in Philadelphia this season to see how the fans welcome back the trio.
Who knows what will happen.
When Covington comes back to the WFC in January I hope he purposely misses both free throws as a final tip of the hat to the frosty freeze out— Charkelle (@SnowmanEmbiid) November 13, 2018
