In a season lost on good times, there haven't been many fond ON court moments for the Washington Wizards.
So, in a recent chat session, when some fan had the gall to ask Caron Butler about his most memorable on and off court recollections of the '08-'09 season, all Tuff Juice really had as an answer was a shot he hit to win one game, a team bowling outing in San Antonio, and, sadly, the return of Gilbert Arenas and Brendan Haywood to the practice court.
Yep, we're talking about practice.
Caron also released other tidbits about himself, such as where you can find him getting his grub on: Gladys Knight & Ron Winans Chicken & Waffles in Upper Marlboro (he probably frequented Roscoe's when he was a Laker).
Filling out your NCAA March Madness brackets and want some advice from Tuff Juice? Well, he's picking the UNC Tar Heels, Pitt Panthers, Louisville Cardinals and his UCONN Huskies for the Final Four -- hopefully none of those teams will be in the same region.
But perhaps most importantly, Butler divulges the source for his in-game straw chewing habit. Yes, he has an entire straw in his mouth during the course of play; you'll see it poking out his mouth during timeouts. The tradition evidently began when he was a teen to calm his nerves.
Does Tuff Juice choke on small things? That'd be a resounding no.
