TWO YEARS ago, former Celtics point guard Chris Herren was the subject of an excellent ESPN 30-for-30 documentary titled "Unguarded."
In it, Herren gave a brutally honest account of how drug addiction ruined his NBA career. Eventually, he got clean and is now counseling others.
Which brings us to the NFL Rookie Symposium being held this week in Aurora, Ohio.
Herren recently spoke. The rookies - if they are smart - listened.
"My opening line to them was, 'Unfortunately, in the room right now there are more future drunks and drug addicts than there are multimillionaires,' " Herren told FOXSports.com. "And you can choose not to listen. You can choose to say that's not me, I'll never be that guy, but I said the same thing when I sat in my rookie transition program in 1999."
