Caron Butler pulled the ultimate troll move Friday against the Toronto Raptors.

With 15-seconds left in the game and the Clippers down 98-71, Butler went over to Jonas Valanciunas to give him a fake high-five at mid-court. Instead of letting the clock run out and share a brief chat with the rookie, Butler stole the ball from Valanciunas.

Valanciunas was called for a clear path foul and Butler was rewarded with two free throws. Even if it was a somewhat poor sportsmanship play this was a hilarious move by Butler. He finished with 12 points on the night instead of 10.

  • Well, it is a game about ME - isn't it?
  • Stat building, that's all it was.
  • No class jerk; call A Rod, you'll have lots to talk about!
  • What a low life!
  • To use a baseball phrase, Butler's move was completely bush league. I know basketball and I think the Raptors are a joke, but at least they are trying with acquisition of Gay. Butler? Not funny.
  • That's life in the hood! The NBA needs to be re-named to the INL. You can decide what the acronym stands for..
