LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Diehard Wildcats fans certainly remember Rex Chapman’s time in “Rexington” as a member of the UK basketball team.
After his time at UK, Chapman would go on to play for four NBA teams before addiction issues began to plague him after numerous surgeries and prescriptions to painkillers.
Chapman entered rehab in Louisville a few years ago and will share his story at a dinner for the Healing Place this weekend.
Chapman is now doing TV and radio covering the Cats.
He will be speaking at the Marriott Saturday night.
