NBA Security Called To Jimmy Butler's Hotel Room After Numerous Noice Complaints

NBA Security Called To Jimmy Butler's Hotel Room After Numerous Noice Complaints

The NBA's 'snitch hotline' is alive and kicking with Jimmy Butler becoming its latest victim.

It's understood the NBA set up the in-house phone line for players and staff to notify officials of mask, quarantine and social distancing breaches within the Orlando bubble.

Now, according to Yahoo Sports, competition organisers were called to Butler's Walt Disney World hotel room late last night after receiving noise complaints - in particular a 'loud thumping'.

Upon arrival, security found the Miami Heat guard drenched in sweat, dribbling a basketball in his room by himself.

During a segment on NBA on TNT, reporter Chris Haynes said: "A security guard received a complaint of disturbance for loud thumping."

While Butler's 3am isolation workouts make it clear that every player wants an added edge heading into the NBA restart on July 30, the introduction of the in-house phone line is shaping up to be a roadblock.

The numerous calls coming from both players and staff resulted in Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie Spencer Dinwiddie dubbing the hotline: "the "snitch hotline".

But while the strict systems in place have clearly irked the players themselves, it's clear NBA officials are doing everything in their power to ensure the revamped 2020 season gets underway without any hiccups.
