Rasual Butler: The Last Spot

And the last Highlander appears to be Rasual Butler.

He brings long experience and stability to the bench, something that Randy Whittman likes a lot. In the five pre-season games with the Wizards, Butler averaged 20 minutes, 6.8 ppg, 2 rebounds and an assist. He shot 40% in three-pointers and averaged less than a turnover a game.

So Butler may not win you a game, but he certainly won’t lose you one either.

His scoring really dropped off the last couple years, but he was averaging small amounts of garbage time per game. It appears he will mostly be doing the same, except for maybe this first month where injuries will put him in regular rotation.

Other fun facts, he appeared in a Trina video and appeared as himself in “Think Like A Man.”

Now we can bestow the nickname Ra’s Al Ghul upon him, hoping that the Verizon Center turns into his Lazarus Pit.
