Former NBA player Rasaul Butler was killed in a car crash early this morning, along with his passenger wife Leah LaBelle.  The sad and shocking details are inside.



After playing for the San Antonio Spurs, the Miami Heat and many other teams in an NBA career that spanned close to 15 years, 38-year-old Rasaul Butler died this morning in a single car crash.  His wife, 31-year-old Epic records singer Leah Labelle, who once appeared on "American Idol," was his passenger and also did not survive.

The couple was driving in Studio City, CA around 2am this morning when Rasaul reportedly lost control of his Range Rover before it slammed into a parking meter and then a wall.

According to TMZ, officers believe the car was speeding before the crash.
