I sincerely hope Butler does well, even well enough to get the ROY because I have such high respect for Riley and the Heat.
One thing we all know about Riley is how he teaches players to become very good team defenders or they get bench time. Some, like Todd Day get released in weeks because "he had no committment to defense."! Butler will be a player who does it on both ends - if Riley has anything to say about it.
I agree Rifleman. Butler will be a very good NBA Player, but I don't see him becoming Paul Pierce. He should average like 18, 4, 6 in the NBA.
