T-Wolves Fans Chant “Rachel Nichols” To Heckle HEAT Jimmy Butler During Game

During the recent Miami Heat-Minnesota Timberwolves matchup, fans of Timberwolves capitalized on the rumor that Jimmy Butler used to date Rachel Nichols to heckle the Miami Heat star.

But trust the fans of Miami Heat to also pay them back in their own coin when Minnesota Timberwolves visits. Via Total Pro Sports:

The rumors were false, but that will do nothing for opposing fan bases who are likely to follow in the footsteps of Minnesota fans and do the exact same thing when Butler comes to town.

Of course, the rumors were false since Nichols is a married woman. She was just one of the reporters who Butler could go to if he needed to vent something.

That isn’t unusual in the NBA or any sport for that matter. Players have their big-time media people they can trust to go to, and Nichols was the one Butler went to when he was trying to force his way out of Minnesota and telling the world how soft the T-Wolves players were.

No idea if the chanting phased Butler in the least, but the T-Wolves did win the game.

Edwards had 33 points and 14 rebounds, and the Timberwolves beat Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat 113-101 on Wednesday for their fifth straight victory.

“It was a great night. Our guys were amped up to play for all the obvious reasons — good team, personal battles, big crowd,” coach Chris Finch said.

Malik Beasley scored a season-high 29 points off the bench and D’Angelo Russell added 20 for the Timberwolves, who launched a franchise-record 55 attempts from behind the arc and made 18. Edwards (six), Beasley (five) and Russell (four) did the most damage.

The Wolves, who closed the game on an 11-2 run, went 11 for 27 from 3-point range after halftime as Edwards added yet another highlight to his budding career.
