HoopsHype Da'Sean Butler rumors

October 22, 2010 Updates

Despite a roster containing solid pros such as Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Howard, Carlos Arroyo, Mario Chalmers and Jamaal Magloire, Miami's supporting cast is often labeled as suspect in the media and there's a strong sense that this group of guys are using the slights as added motivation and are out to prove skeptics wrong. "Honestly, I would (take it personally) too," HEAT rookie forward Da'Sean Butler told HOOPSWORLD. "Everyone here now has something to prove. We haven't done anything as a team. You can go from top to bottom. I know LeBron has something to prove. He's trying to win his first championship. Chris (Bosh) as well. D-Wade wants to get another title. They (media) keep talking about the 'big three' and other guys aren't getting their recognition for being the players they are, so they have a lot to prove. There is no one here that has nothing prove." HoopsWorld

From the start, I have viewed the Heat’s payment to Beverley as a thank you for agreeing to spend last season in Europe when the Heat was into the luxury tax (and therefore would have had to take a one-season hit for Beverley with the money it now will pay him over two seasons). With Butler, the Heat seems to be going to great lengths with a player who still has a long way to go in his rehab. Butler could be something special. Based on summer league, even in such a small sample, I’m not sure the same can be said for Beverley. South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The story spread virally on the internet and it prompted Tauntr.com to turn the tweeted story into a short video. The video is even more disturbing than the original story. The Rookie Wall

There are times in this business when you think you’ve seen it all. Over 23 years of covering the Heat, there are times I certainly have thought that. And then there was Wednesday, when Heat rookie forward Da’Sean Butler tweeted a children’s short story. Yes, tweeted. In 28 tweets of 140 or fewer characters, he put together his compilation. Because this is not a literary review, I will leave such judgments to others. But at least now I know that I hadn’t see it all. South Florida Sun-Sentinel
