The Bleacher Report‘s sixth season of Game of Zones has returned with its debut episode. For the premiere, the show puts its focus on Jimmy Butler and the practice scandal that shook the NBA earlier this season. The incident surrounds Butler who was then a Timberwolves player, and during a practice session broke out into frustration on how poorly the team was performing. He was said to have berated other players, coaches and front office personnel. As a result, Butler chose to play with “end-of-the-bench” players from the squad and challenged the team’s elite members to a scrimmage. Needless to say, even with his rag-tag bunch, Butler handily defeated his opponents with a practice performance that made a statement on his importance to the team and his determination to win.
Jimmy Butler, however, is now on the Philadelphia 76ers squad and he has now become the hot topic for a new Game of Zones episode. It’s perfect timing for the season debut as the real Game of Thrones show will premiere today, Sunday on HBO.
