    Jimmy Butler came under fire from some fans when a photo of him rocking a provocative t-shirt was circling on Instagram.  Wearing a tee that borrows the phrase from Lil Wayne’s track, “Pussy Money & Weed,” offended some people, so he took to Twitter to apologize. Apparently, he was not trying to make a statement with the shirt, but only wore it because the gray went with his kicks that...
