Remember last week when Jimmy Butler was traded to the Timberwolves and people were all pissed off at him for leaving the Bulls in such a lopsided deal? And remember how Butler later gave out his REAL phone number so all of his critics could contact him directly?

Yeah, well, apparently that move isn’t working out so well for a man named Michael Byrne of Evanston, Illinois.

That’s because while Butler has been busy fielding texts and talking to fans on FaceTime

taking all calls 😂😂 and y'all thought it was a game!
