Not to keep posting about one roster move, but I think they should cancel Danbridge’s flight right now. Cardell Butler is available now that the ABA’s San Diego Wildcats threw in the towel. Butler was like the West Coast version of Tommy Mitchell… and we all know how I feel about Tommy Mitchell!
He played at the all-star game in Halifax (meeting the “pillage ABA all-stars from opposing teams” requirement for roster building) and was the starting shooting guard on a top 25 D1 team. He also a solid defender who is a real two guard and a serious deep threat. He’s 6’4 with a very good handle and a lot of experience. He also would help at the gate due to his fame as a street baller. He was on the And1 Tour during its peak and appeared on a number of mixtapes and the ESPN series where he was known as Ballaholic. He ended getting booted from the reality show due to his penchant for just trying to win games rather than dance… which is an unfortunate trait for a streetballer, but a good quality for a minor league basketball player.
I have to wonder if he knows Eric – they’re both from the Bay area (though on opposite sides of said Bay) and approximately the same age and I can’t imagine that the basketball community is so big that they haven’t played in summer leagues and Pro-Am tournaments together over the years.
Proven minor league player. Athletic defender. Top notch three point shooter. Proven D1 track record. Excellent ball handler and a natural guard. Internet fame and streetball credibility. Dump the Mizzou burnout and sign the Ballaholic.
