Caron Butler’s life story is all about escaping the pitfalls of the streets. Before he played his college ball at Uconn he was arrested 15 different times including an instance where he was caught in school with an unloaded gun and a small amount of cocaine. During his first week at a home for troubled youth he found himself in solitary confinement after assaulting a rival gang member. As we all know, Butler turned his life around and had a solid NBA career with a top 10 draft pick, two All-Star appearances and a championship title with Mavericks in 2011.
