Rasual “R-Butt” Butler has been a surprising contributor for the Wizards this year. In tonight’s game, which contained a bunch of players who are (presumably, but who knows at this point) better than him, he was the leading scorer. Is there any precedent for a 35-year-old player winning Most Improved?
Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. But maybe not. Who else is in the running? I can’t think of any other players whose last name is Butler who would be in contention for the award. Not a single one.
