New Mav Caron Butler: What Did He Dew?

Well, that certainly was a dud.

Not ready to rescind the Josh Howard trade just yet, but newest Maverick Caron Butler opened with a resounding sperplunk in last night's loss in Oklahoma City.

Couple of airballs. Had as many turnovers as baskets (4). Generally looked like Michael Finley, including one ferocious dunk and the familiar No. 4, which were totally off-set by him mostly settling for outside jumpers.

Thing about Butler, dude has a tough background/backbone. Arrested 15 times before age 15 and was once addicted to ... 

You guessed it - Moutain Dew.

I'd say six 12-ouncers a day should be sufficient. You ever been so hooked on something so legal?
