Why Yes, You Can Interest Caron Butler In Some Cake And Ice Cream

Caron Butler's been to both ends of the birthday party spectrum in the last year. Of course, there was Gilbert Arenas's blow-out, complete with ice sculpture, Busta Rhymes, and the Arenas Express Card.

And now, via this adorable little story at the superb DC Sports Bog yesterday afternoon, comes a report of Caron attending the birthday party of a random 16-year-old kid from the neighborhood. The family sent the birthday boy's kid sister over to Caron's house to invite him to the party, and he showed up, brought a jersey and some shoes, and hung out with high school kids for an afternoon. See Caron talking about it here.

I don't remember my 16th birthday party, but I'm pretty sure Caron Butler wasn't there. But, on the other hand, I don't think it was at home, with Pepsi, cake, and ice cream, either. It was very sweet of Caron to show up, but they could've at least gotten him drunk.
