Rasual Butler, a well-liked and steady presence on several NBA teams, including the Clippers and most recently the Spurs, along with his wife, Leah LaBelle, who had appeared on “American Idol” in 2004, were killed in a single-vehicle crash that occurred early Wednesday morning at around 2:00 a.m. on Ventura Blvd.
Butler was only 38, and his wife 31.
Police believe the vehicle was traveling at a very high rate of speed just prior to the crash, and they believe Butler lost control of the vehicle, which flipped several times, hit a wall and came to rest in a strip mall (Marshall's) parking lot.
Rasual, a native of Philly, played college ball at La Salle, and was a veteran of several NBA teams over the past decade, including the Clippers, Raptors and most recently the Spurs in the 2015-16 season.
He was a great guy and he will be sorely missed. RIP Rasual Butler. .
