Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler is not here for the All-Star Game.

Butler was named an All-Star reserve along with his teammate Karl-Anthony Towns and is slated to play on Team Stephen Curry. But if Butler had things his way, he wouldn’t participate in the game at all, per John Meyer of Canis Hoopus.

For most of the NBA players, the All-Star break is just that — a break. They relax, eat what they want, go on vacation like Taj Gibson, or do whatever else their heart desires. But playing in an exhibition basketball game — or doing anything basketball-related for that matter — is the furthest thing from their minds.
