Had a quick word just moments ago with Caron Butler, who reports that he is feeling much better today after recovering from a reaction to medication.
Couldn't resist asking him about the NBA's ban of chewing straws. He too sees the humor in this thing. He just laughed and said he'll do whatever he has to in order to abide by the rules of the NBA straw police.
Asked what his new chew will be, Butler said: "I don't know. I'll have to find something quick, though.''
