Default Better sidekick: Josh Howard or Caron Butler?

Me and my buddy were debating about this earlier. Obviously, they both contribute well for their respective teams and one could be well over a superstar if they were on a different team. Both play very similar, however, Butler is more of the team player. Not knocking on Howard, especially when he takes the cake when it comes to mid-range jumpers and whatnot.From your perspective, which of these guys would be a better sidekick alongside your favorite superstar?

Personally, I would go with Butler.

I would go with Butler, he is a better scorer, as good as a defender, slighty better rebounder, penerates more. Howard is great but I would prefer Butler.

Butler's clearly the answer for me, but the margin isn't very big.

Butler has definatly got the nod on this matchup. Howard is good, but Butler is as good if not a "little bit" better at almost everything.

The only thing I would give Butler a decided edge on is passing\assists. And for that reason I would take him.

Ah, so are you one of the only other people who has noticed Howard has no offensive IQ, kills every fast break, and never looks up when he dribbles?

Butler for me. Like mentioned above, he is a little better at pretty much everything than Howard, except defense.

I would take Butler but the margin is very small.

Butler is not forced to be the #2 player on his team. i doubt he would perform as well if he was.

Thats an interesting point... Arenas Jamison the Butler...

I like Caron's game a lot but where was it before? Could he be a number 2 option I think so...
I dont see Howard as a number 2 I see him as 2A with Terry being 2B...

It's the same with Jamison and Butler. The 2A/2B thing.

Jamison took less than one full shot per game more than Butler during the season.
