Here Is Some Credible NBA Analysis From Arcade Fire’s Win Butler


When Arcade Fire played MSG, front man Win Butler pointed out his "favorite spot" on the court: where Hakeem Olajuwon blocked John Starks in game six of the 1994 finals. Only, as a helpful Vulture commenter pointed out, Game 6 was in Houston, not New York. So could we ever trust Win Butler's basketball insight again? Yes! In a recent interview with the San Antonio Spurs' Matt Bonner, Butler drops some truth nuggets about this NBA season: "It is such a great time for point guards, but I would have to say Chris Paul and Rondo [are my favorites] ... there is nothing more fun to watch then a great point guard running a team the way it is meant to be run"; "I have to give it to the Celtics this year [for the title] ... I think they have the legs for one more great run"; "I do have to say the Spurs are about my only hope in the west to knock the Lakers out." Faith restored! [ via Hipster Run-off]
