Malcolm Butler Dunks With Ease, Shows Impressive Hops On Hardwood


Malcolm Butler couldn’t have worked his way into Bill Belichick’s good graces without genuine athletic ability. So it makes sense the New England Patriots cornerback has a vertical leap that Red Auerbach probably would have appreciated.

That is, judging from highlights of a pickup basketball game in which he played Wednesday. Butler threw down a pair of dunks for the “Patriots’ “all-star team” in its 64-58 win over a selection of students, administrators from Westwood (Mass.) High School and residents of the town, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

The Patriots list Butler at 5-foot-11, so the fact he dunks with such ease is further proof he’s as much of a legend most of New England thinks he is.
