Caron Butler Says He Doesn't Need Any Hands To Succeed

Caron Butler will once again play through the fractured hand he suffered in Game 1 of the Clippers’ first-round NBA Playoffs series against the Memphis Grizzlies. To defend his bold decision to play through a ton of pain, Butler said he doesn’t need his hands anyway.

"The role that I’m playing right now, what I’m doing, I can play with no hands," Butler said. "It’s not a big deal. I can play."

Butler isn’t Air Bud, last I checked, so his statement isn’t literally correct. THAT SAID, there have to be some players in the league that would survive playing without their hands better than others. Who would those players be? Is Butler one of them?
