Butler doesn't stray far from AAC

DALLAS -- Caron Butler will wait until the summer to do any Dallas sightseeing.

"I'm just worried about winning games right now," Butler said.

Butler has strayed more than a couple of blocks away from the American Airlines Center only once. And that was a confusing experience.

Not because he couldn't find his way around. He just didn't quite know what to make of Shutter Island, which he watched Sunday night at Northpark Mall.

"I've got to look to see what the moral of the story was," Butler said. "It lost me. It was a mind-boggler."

The Mavs' playbook has been much easier for Butler to wrap his mind around. While he can't give directions around Dallas, Butler already has a pretty firm grasp of most of the Mavs' halfcourt sets.
