Chris Herren coming to Rockland
Celtics basketball fans of old will remember the name, Chris Herren. Older Massachusetts high school basketball fans will also remember the name. Chris Herren was a famous high school player from Fall River and went on to play for the Celtics, but only briefly. Addiction to heroin forced Herren out of the NBA and into the greatest struggle of his life: gaining sobriety. Chris Herren has chosen to share his story in a book entitled Basketball Junkie. Everyone who reads it will be shaken by the power that Herren’s addiction held over him. Herren has also chosen to share his story in person with students in schools all over the country. Herren will be in Rockland on September 26th.
