Dunleavy vs. Butler

While watching PTI today that was one of the toss up questions. I dont know if it was Kornheiser or Wilbon who said this but they said butler would be better because he is among many things, more explosive than dunleavy. While watching some of the tapes on him, they are right, he is slow off the dribble. If his J ain't workin, neither is his game. While butler on the other hand is explosive, a high riser, has a good J, is more athletic, better defensively, and I think has better potential. What do you think?

Yeah you are right, Butler is better than Dunleavy. And the thing on when his jump shot is off, Dunleavy is. That was right on, you can say the same thing about Jay also. I just would want a more athletic 3, Bulter can do every thing Dunleavy can and he is more athletic so he is better.

Teams just want Mike because he is supposed to be know so much about the game, and he dad is was a pro coach blah blah.

To be frank with you, I think everyone likes Mike because he is white, might sound harsh but I think it is true. Just think if Mike Dunleavy was black, would he be that popular and wanted? I don't think so!

Dunleavy and butler are about the same... Butler plays better inside, going to the hoop, getting boards.

Dunleavy passes better, better jump shooter

This kind of comparison is hard to decide, becuase Dunleavy and Butler are very different players. But I definitly see Caron Butler being the better player, although Mickie Dun has the slightly better jump shot. Butler is more explosive, has a better inside touch, a better defender, and a hell of alot more fast.

I kind of agree with Sting on this one. It is hard to decide who is better as so much will depend on what they are coming into. I mean, if one guy is getting the minutes he needs, at the spot he likes, he will always look better. If the other is being played out of position, with selfish players, etc... it makes him look bad.

Butler looks more explosive but Dunleavy looks more fundamentally sound to me. It's a toss up, definitely
