Watch Arcade Fire's Win Butler crossover dribble

Thunder forward Nick Collison, Butler, others play charity ball in Canada.

So what did we learn from watching this video of Arcade Fire ringleader Win Butler participating in a Toronto charity basketball tournament with a handful of actual (white) NBA players, musicians and others?

1. He's better at shooting threes than Matt Bonner.

2. While kinda lanky and awkward, he's got better-than-average ball-handling skills and left-hand finish ability, so long as Matt Bonner is not patiently waiting in the paint to swat the eff out of it.

3. Dude hustles.

4. Dude passes OK from the low post.

5. Dude talks decent white-boy smack, at best.

Also, OKC Thunder workhorse Nick Collison deserves a shoutout for his awesome deadpan humor here (which comes at no surprise to anyone who follows him on Twitter). When asked why he should be the top overall draft pick in the charity tournament, he dropped some real talk: "I'm one of the only professional athletes here." Watch below.
