   Anybody Wanna See Second Prize? Second Prize Is A Set Of Steak Knives.....

Butler is a good all-around player with terrible all-around luck. A good slasher, ball handler, shooter, passer and creator, who played all spots from 1-4 for West Virginia at times, Butler tore his ACL in his last game for the Mountaineers that hurt his stock. He slid to the middle of the second round, where Miami picked him up regardless of the injury, only for him to now join a team that frankly hasn't the room or the time for carrying many young players. When healthy, Butler is good enough to play in the NBA, and it will help his slim chances that he plays the position at which Miami currently has its least number of possible options. Unfortunately, one of those options is LeBron James; how many options do you need behind him?

   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 2

Pick 42: To follow up the Varnado pick, Miami makes another safe and sensible pick for a four year college player out of a good program when they choose Da'Sean Butler of West Virginia. Immediately, Bilas jumps in with the confusing analysis "he's not a good shooter, but he makes shots." I think I can see what he's getting at. For example, I'm not a good blogger, but I do blog.

Butler is a good pick. He is not exceptional at any one thing, but he is smart, versatile, and has no discernible weakness. He can shoot, drive, pass, defend players similar to he, chip in with the rebounding, will do his best, do his duty to God and to the Queen, help other people, and keep the Cub Scout Law. Maybe he can do what the comparable Kasib Powell never did, and stick in the NBA for more than an hour. (Perhaps fittingly, Powell's only NBA minutes have come with the Heat.)

Da'Sean Butler - Butler famously tore his ACL in his final college game, but it didn't heal too well. Indeed, Butler describes it as "disintegrated". He has returned to WVU to work as a graduate assistant, and is done with playing, at least for now.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 10th November 2017

The other Clipper injury beneficiary right now is career backup Johnson, who started the last game and played the bulk of the second half of the one prior after a first-half injury in that game to Danilo Gallinari. Last game, Johnson recorded 12 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal, a block and 25.2 fantasy points, and while this is his highest outing of the season, he has always returned double digit fantasy point output in every game. Now as a starter, he can up his minutes and his production, making him a potential dirt-cheap pick until Gallinari returns.
