What is going on? Every single day another tragedy has been seeming to hunt us all. Today, it was the death of ex-NBA player Rasual Butler and his wife…

Around 2 AM this morning, Rasual Butler was near Studio City when police got the call. After initial reports, it seemed as the 38-year-old lost control of his Range Rover. Butler’s vehicle struck the parking meter and slammed into the wall. The worst of all, the car flipped.

TMZ released the report this morning…

According to the report, officers believed that the car was definitely speeding before losing control, running into the parking meter.

Guys, this is sad. This is REALLY sad. Even though he wasn’t a “superstar” in the league, he definitely had a long and happy career. Butler played with the Hornets, Clippers, Pacers, Raptors, Wizards, Spurs, etc. He just stopped playing in 2016… even joining in on the Ice Cube’s Big 3 league.

Rasual Butler’s wife, Leah LaBelle was also killed during the crash. She was signed to Epic Records and was on the 3rd season of American Idol.

Goosebumps. After all that hard work you put into your craft and all those memories you create, to lose everything is extremely difficult. Honestly, it is heart-breaking.

People and organizations around the league gave their prayers to this tragedy…

All we can do is keep Rasual Butler and his family in your prayers. Remember, life is short. Make sure you are doing your best to be HAPPY every single day.
