the Grizzlies fan who spent the night heckling Butler was left to wonder what might have been

“He’s too good of a shooter to stay in a slump,” Hoiberg said of McDermott. “He puts too much work in, too much time in. He cares, obviously. He takes it hard when he doesn’t have a good shooting game. And the thing he does is he lives in the gym, trying to get his […]
