Caron Butler’s Unoriginal Hair and Analysis of Tyler Herro

NBA TV analyst Caron Butler and his brand new hair seems to have stumbled on some old takes (Read this, his new hair is absurd). The oldest, in particular, is about Miami Heat newcomer, Tyler Herro. He says that Herro, after a very impressive Summer League, reminds him of two former Heat players.

Butler said, “He’s got a little bit of everything in him; I see a little bit of Jason Williams, I see a little bit of Rex Chapman, I see a little bit from an athletic standpoint, being explosive… Just being aggressive. His mentality, he’s extremely comfortable out there on that platform, on that stage knowing that everybody’s watching. And he’s having fun.”

Really, Caron? Rex Chapman and Jason Williams? Did you come up with that comparison all by yourself there, bud? I am all for the former Cats getting high praise in the NBA, but that take by Caron Butler is somehow more unoriginal than his hair.

Every white basketball player to come through Kentucky since the 90’s has been compared to Rex Chapman. John Hood even got the same comparison. Caron Butler is about 30 years late on this take. I believe the first headline written after Tyler Herro changed his commitment from Wisconsin to Kentucky was “The Next Rex Chapman Is Coming to Lexington.”

To be completely fair, Herro does play a lot like Chapman, more so than others that have been given the same praise, but it doesn’t sound like a lot of effort was put into that take. To me, Herro plays a lot like Jamal Murray, Devin Booker, or maybe even a young Paul Pierce. How hard would it have been for Butler to put a little bit of thought into that? Also, the Jason Williams comparison doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Yes, Herro made some sweet passes in the Summer League, but it’s a stretch to say the least. Herro’s game and White Chocolate’s don’t exactly match up.

Even though Chapman and Williams are relatively lazy names to throw out, that is still very good company to be grouped with. Herro is going to be a star in this league and it is only a matter of time before players are being compared to him and not the other way around.

Caron Butler Showed Up to an NBA Broadcast with a Full Head of Hair Like We Wouldn’t All Notice

I probably think more about the state of Delaware than I do Caron Butler, but he has now occupied my thoughts for 90% of the last day.

Pulling a scheme right out of Carlos Boozer’s playbook, Caron Butler put his pride aside and showed up to the NBA Broadcast booth a full head of fresh lettuce despite the fact he has been bald since at least 2011.

Just like Charlie Villanueva, Ray Allen and others, if they showed up randomly with bad hair instead of no hair, they would get roasted too. No one took it easy on Carlos Boozer or Jason Witten and no one should go easy on Caron Butler either. He looks like his head ran out of toner.

But all this clowning of Caron Butler should make him feel good in a way. Judging by how he has been irrelevant in the NBA since 2015, everyone noticing his hair means that he is remembered by a lot of fans and he is immortalized to them. But then again, I am sure he is also fearing his next appearance on the NBA Broadcast in a couple days where they have an entire segment dedicated to tweets about his hair.

Just hire Boozer’s PR guy. He’ll get you out of this.
