About Chris Herren

Chris Herren, a basketball legend from Fall River, Massachusetts, realized his dreams by playing for the Celtics in the NBA, only to lose it all to addiction.  Drug-free and alcohol-free since 2008, Chris has refocused his life to put sobriety and family above all else. 

 In 2009 Chris launched Hoop Dreams with Chris Herren (, a basketball player development company which provided customized, superior basketball training through private training, clinics and camps. Off the court, Chris continues to share his story with audiences in the hopes of reaching just one person and making a difference in their life.  With the release of his memoir, Basketball Junkie, in 2011, Chris was approached by hundreds of people and their families looking for assistance in their road to recovery.  Inspired by their stories, Chris formed The Herren Project ( to educate at-risk populations on addiction and help others in taking the first steps toward recovery and a life of sobriety.
