Boston Celtics stars Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris weighed in on the ongoing drama between Jimmy Butler and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Both players ultimately sided with the four-time All-Star over the T-Wolves.

Jimmy’s a stone-cold killer,” Brown said, per MassLive’s Tom Westerholm. “Nothing point-blank about it. His work ethic speaks for itself, and I think that situation speaks for itself.”

Morris also commented on a report by ESPN.com’s Adrian Wojnarowski that Butler rejoined the Wolves for practice Wednesday and essentially took over the practice, telling general manager Scott Layden, “You f–king need me, Scott. You can’t win without me.”

Ain’t nobody coming in like that, not while I’m in the gym,” Morris said of that situation, per Westerholm. “There’s gonna be something bigger than that, and they ain’t gonna be busting our ass like that. Minnesota has been known to be a little soft, so you know how that goes.”
