Professionalism: B. Another area in which Butler’s reputation preceded him. For the most part, he lived up to the hype. He was great with fans, complementary of the city, terrific with teammates and a joy to the media. But he left town on a bad note. He was one of only two Thunder players — rookie Grant Jerrett was excused because he never saw the court with the Thunder — to not sit down for an exit interview with the media. Team officials said it was a miscommunication on their part. But it looked bad for Butler, especially after the way his final game in a Thunder uniform played out.
