Play • 38 min

Chinny and Emmett explore PeacePlayers’ core value of Inside Out Transformation with a legend in the Massachusetts basketball scene, Chris Herren. Chris’ story of fame and addiction is well documented in the 30 for 30 documentary, Unguarded, so in today’s conversation with the social justice podcast Play It Forward presented by PeacePlayers, Chris shares valuable advice he received during his road to recovery, and how he approached his recovery like a basketball player would approach their journey to excellence on the court, by putting in the work! We also hear about Emmett’s relationship to Chris, and the important role Chris has played in inspiring athletes and young people across Massachusetts, and beyond!

CONTENT Warning: this conversation explores the ups and the downs of substance abuse and addiction; listener discretion is advised.
