Caron Butler: Done for the Season

Even though it was expected, this is still quite terrible news for Caron and his squad. Via Mavs PR: “Caron Butler is out for season, per Mavs per staff. He had surgery to repair ruptured patellar tendon today.”

    Not-So-Tough Juice…
    Get well soon, CB.

    Duncan quietly nods at these developments.

    Damn damn damn, like florida… …… … Crawford, this isnt about him being tough or not, hes seriously injured. No one could play thru this injury

  • ErnieD

    Former UConn Huskie still has plenty of game left in him. Get well soon CB.

  • Redirkulous Kidd

    It was a play on words, Tarzan.
    Are you always this sensitive? This is two days in a row now.

    It’s because he couldn’t chew his straws. What a travesty.

  • Bruno

    there goes the mavs chances of beating LA in the playoffs

    This is a huge blow for the Mavs. Hopefully other guys will step up.

    I know it was a play on words, but it was funny. Dude is out for the season………. ….. If he was sitting out for mild tendonitis like john wall, id clown him for not living up to his nickname

    this sucks for the mavs but at least they have some depth at the 3, and can go to a tiny but offensively potent 3 guard lineup–with JET playing the role of Microwave 2.0. I still think they can be a force in the West

    @Nicolas. Or not drinking anymore Mountain Dew… lol

    As 4real as the Mavs were looking, this opens the door for the Lakers to get the number 2 seed.

    Down go the Mavs!
    Without Butler, I don’t think they have enough scoring alongside the big German. This makes me sad.

    somebody check up on Darksaber

    Surgery two days after the injury? Someone give Bynum a call and let him know that players are allowed to get surgery and start rehab right away instead of enjoying their vacation before starting rehab.

    This sucks hard. I wanted to see how they’d do this year. They actually looked legit. No Juice, it’s too much even for Dirk to shoulder.

  • ezra

    The Mavs should try and trade for T-mac, he has prooved recently that he can still ball. Check his stats in his last 6, hes been getting minutes cuz of Stuckeys injuries and playing very well.

    Meanwhile, Cuban calls PJ “Jeanie Buss’ boy-toy” for saying the Mavs will miss Caron. Cuban is a complete d1ck.

    @ melvin ely: well played, exceptional. I just got paddle shocked outta my coma. Two things though:
    -Mavs just won playing people who were labeled as scrubs (souljaboy, the cardinal), and Dirk’s due back soon, sooo i like the team’s mindset this season. A lot.
    - Caron’s tweets so soon after a bad injury and surgery are so upbeat. Good positive guy, that one.
    Oh and: HEAL RODDY!

  • mIG

    i hate the mavs so much im glad he got hurt. i want dirk to break his legs and jason kidd to die hahah go nuggets

  • readin at work

    i should be mad at mIG for wishing harm on others, especially Dirk, but i’m a big nuggets fan too, so i’ll pretend i didn’t hear it.

  • deshawn33
