Video: Caron Butler Gets Title Ring from Dallas Mavericks

by February 14, 2012

It was an emotional affair for Caron Butler and his former teammates in Dallas last night prior to the Mavericks’ victory over the LA Clippers. From the Star-Telegram: “I was very emotional,’ Butler said. ‘I didn’t think I was going to be as emotional. Having Mark Cuban, Rick Carlisle, the whole standing ovation, it was just … unbelievable. It was a great feleing. I almost cried. I had to put my head down a couple of times to try to gather myself.’ Butler hit three three-pointers in the first period and wound up scoring a season-high 23 points — on 7-of-18 shooting — and grabbing eight rebounds. And he almost became the hero. However, with a chance to put the Clippers up by one point, Butler missed a three-point field goal with 4.5 seconds left. The Mavs went on to win, 96-92.”
