Tonight ESPN will air, Unguarded, a documentary on the life of former Fresno State star and Boston Celtic, Chris Herren. He’s probably one of the coolest “white” players you’ve never heard of (think Jason Williams mixed with Birdman). His story of overcoming adversity in Basketball is probably the realest you’ll ever hear next to Dennis Rodman’s.
I remember hearing a little about Herren’s battles with Drug addiction a long time ago more via my interest in Rafer Alston -his teammate at Fresno and a well known NY street ball legend- than anything. But Herren’s a legend in his own right. Recently, I read an amazing article in Slam (i think) about him so I’m excited to see how the film turns out. Be sure to tune in tonight at 8pm.
