Caron's Great Escape

There's an excellent story on the front page of Sunday's Washington Post by Michael Lee detailing Caron Butler's rise from a drug-dealing lifestyle in Racine, Wisconsin to his current status as an NBA All-Star and community activist. Tuff Juice's story is well-documented, by this is a great account with interviews with the childhood friends and the police officer who essentially saved his career on the hardwood.

Check out the story here.

Caron won't play in tonight's All-Star game due to that hip injury, but it was great to see him courtside last night, enjoying Dwight Howard's showmanship with the rest of the stars.
