Killa hopped on Instagram Saturday (November 10) to weigh-in on NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler getting traded to the 76ers from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Butler is now in the Atlantic Division, and the Celtics road to the Finals just got a bit more hard.
Butler had announced that he wanted to be traded around the time training camps opened in September.
