Maybe Caron Butler was just born a travelin’ man, or perhaps he’s a rollin’ stone … but without the negative connotations that come with those terms.
So for this off-season, Tuff Juice has hung with Orpah at an awards banquet in D.C., chewed straws with with NBC 4’s Lindsay Czarniak at the Cheesecake Factory, performed a day of community service for Caron Butler Day in Racine, WI, thrown the first pitch at a Nats game, coached at Big Tigger’s Celebrity Basketball Classic and celebrated at Lux Lounge, attended the Marcus Johnson album release party at the Ritz Carlton in Georgetown, sat ringside at the Pacquiao-Hatton fight in Vegas, has been the topic of a rap song courtesy of Mr. Wicked, chilled with Kobe in L.A., and checked Venus Williams and the Washington Kastles while telling the departed Oleksiy Pecherov that he’s just a phone call or text away.
And I’m sure that isn’t the half of it.
Tonight, Butler, along with Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Delonte West, and Michael Beasley (all dubbed as Caron’s “friends” as he is the headliner), will be hosting, depending on which flier you look at, a Worldwide Tour or National Tour at Bed Nightclub in South Beach Miami.
If I didn’t know better, Mr. Butler might be angling for a future career in politics.
