“We anticipate there will be people at all levels, not just local investors,’’ Dickert said. Dickert wouldn’t disclose the names of any potential investors, but did confirm Racine native and two-time NBA All-Star Caron Butler could be a part of a consortium of investors. Butler has consistently been involved in Racine community activities and said several years ago in a Journal Times report that he wanted to eventually do something significant for his hometown.

Me: Where did this entrepreneurial passion come from? UH: When I was hurt in the playoffs (2010), the year we played Chicago, I spent all year out. I came back for that Chicago series. I just had a lot of time to think. The injury I had was so specific, which was the Lisfranc injury. I had never heard of it. I had never seen it. And I started to research it. It wasn’t good. I didn’t know if I’d be back. And so I just had to start thinking. Me: I’m sure you talked with Caron Butler about this? UH: Yeah. Definitely. I had extensive conversations with Caron about it. I played with Caron one year and I had a chance to sit down and talk to him this summer.

NBA star Caron Butler has made it clear he’d LOVE for Michael B. Jordan to play him in the movie Mark Wahlberg is producing about his life. So, when we saw Michael B. out at Catch in West Hollywood Tuesday night … we had to ask the guy — would you do it??? Good news for Caron, he didn’t exactly say no. Of course, Caron’s life story is amazing — he overcame a hard life as a drug dealing youth to make in the NBA. Wahlberg bought the rights to Caron’s story back in March and now a movie is in the works. In fact, the last time we got Butler out he told us how things are going behind the scenes — and why he wants Michael B. to play him on-screen.
