Video: Caron Butler gets his championship ring

Feb 14, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

Caron Butler had a good night in Dallas — he got his championship ring as part of last year’s Mavericks (he was injured through the playoffs but was key for them the first part of the year), then he went out and scored a season high 23 on his old team as part of the Clippers.

It was almost a great night. With less than 10 seconds left in the game and the Clippers down two, Chris Paul made a steal and rather than call timeout — like most controlling coaches would have preferred — he pushed the ball up and tried to make something happen against a scrambling Dallas defense. He did — Butler got a good look at a game winning three. He just missed it (he was still 5-of-10 from three on the night).

Still, he got the ring. And that is pretty sweet.

    Pretty classy, too bad Kurt doesn’t have it in him to admit it. Mavs are a first class organization.

      When did I say they weren’t? Mavs are one of the elite organizations in the league.

        I have always heard a negative tone from you towards the Mavs in your articles. Maybe it is your distaste for Cuban…

    its a shame he wasn’t active for the finals, i know it hurt him to miss all of that. Either way Butler is a beast and is missed.
