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.
