Overwhelmingly, for the 450 men who play NBA Basketball in the U.S., their success can be attributed to the family members who sacrificed to get them where they are today. But one of the league’s star players had a tough childhood, yet overcame the odds to become the family man he never had for a role model.
Two-time NBA All-Star Caron Butler grew up on the mean streets of Racine, Wisconsin. He didn’t have a father in his life, and was exposed to every illegal vice there was, and drawn in by the allure of it all.
It was a judge who cynically believed the youth to be nothing more than a menace to society who lit a fire inside him.

He’s got killer career, a successful marriage to Amal Clooney and now two healthy babies, Ella and Alexander—so it’s pretty clear that the Oscar winner’s clearly got how to win at life on lock down. But what about how he navigates fatherhood?
The 56-year-old actor has dished many times over the years about his film and TV roles, but what’s he had to say about his most important role yet?
Let’s go through all the things that the soap star-turned-prime-time star-turned-superstar-turned-husband-turned-dad has said about fatherhood!
Here we go:
Clooney caught up with E! News’ Marc Malkin at CinemaCon in Las Vegas in March, he said: “Can you believe it?! Yeah, [I’m] even happier [than before,].”
He gushed, “I didn’t know that we’d have kids. I was very happy that we were going to get married and then [a pregnancy] seemed like the next step.”
When we asked if he’d busy baby-proofing their home, the former E.R. star said: “Hang on for a minute. I played a pediatrician on ER, so I know how to work on extra children… If there’s any accidents I’m there. I’m the guy.”
On waiting to pick a name until meeting their kids, he teased, “Because I’ve had friends pick out names around their parents and then it becomes… whatever name you pick they’re like, ‘Oh, I don’t like that. That guy’s a prime minister… Can’t name her Susan. You remember your Aunt Susan?'”

He also told the publication: “We have the chance to live between three countries: Italy, America, and England. But as soon as the children go to school, it’ll be necessary to choose where to settle. In the meantime, we will continue to move according to our respective schedules.”
Before the babies were even a twinkle in his eye, the Kentucky native told CBS This Morning in 2015: “I’ve thought about it I suppose,…
When a dad overseas couldn’t attend his daughter’s dance at school, he came up with a solution fit for a Disney princess.
On April 28, 5-year-old Gracee Nelson attended her school’s father-daughter dance in El Paso, Texas, with an unexpected guest. Her father, Christopher Nelson, is in Afghanistan for a year-long stay as a contractor for the Army. He knew he wouldn’t be able to attend the dance with his daughter, so he worked with his wife, Lanya Nelson, to come up with a plan.
“Once I realized how much the dance meant to her I told my husband and he wanted to make sure she’d still be able to go,” Lanya told HuffPost.
Christopher and Lanya first suggested that Gracee take her uncle or grandfather, but they soon realized…
