A tragic news has befalling the entertainment industry as former renowned NBA player Rasual Butler and his lovely wife, Leah LaBelle, had a ghastly car crash that claimed their lives in the early hours of Wednesday morning in Studio City, California.

This occurred at around 2 a.m., when Butler reportedly lost control of his Range Rover while driving two to three times higher than the usual speed limit, hit hard on a parking meter and flipped over in the air before slamming into a hard wall.

The 38-year-old former basket ball player was drafted out of La Salle by the Miami Heat in the 2nd round of the 2002 NBA draft before he moved on to play for the Heat, Hornets, Clippers, Bulls, Raptors, Pacers, Wizards and Spurs from 2002 to 2016. He was even expected to play a 2nd season in the BIG3 League before this incident.

The NBA family is devastated by the tragic passing of Rasual Butler and his wife, Leah LaBelle.

Butler Rasual had enjoyed a long successful career and was widely respected by his peers, spot fans and coaches.
