About This Episode
On this episode of the Positive University Podcast, bestselling author Jon Gordon talks with Chris Herren. Chris is a former NBA basketball player with a powerfully moving story! Rolling Stone profiled him, 60 Minutes interviewed him, and the Denver Nuggets drafted him. When the Boston Celtics acquired his contract, he lived the dream of every Massachusetts kid – but off the court… Chris was secretly crumbling, as his alcohol and drug use escalated and his life spiraled out of control. He nearly lost everything and everyone he loved… and one day, for a time he cannot remember, he even lost his life.
It’s a life I never thought I would live. My recovery and faith has provided for not only me, but everyone who loves me and I am eternally grateful for that.” – Chris Herren
