Ten years after retirement from a career as a professional athlete, former New Jersey Nets draft pick Kenny Anderson (known by his friends by his childhood nickname, Mr. Chibbs) finds that basketball is easy; it’s life that is hard. Still reeling from his mother’s death, the former New York City playground legend, high-school prodigy, and NBA All-Star loses a cherished coaching position, sending him into a midlife crisis. Facing his personal demons head-on, the charismatic Anderson must come to terms with his past in order to find a way forward and lead a happy life after basketball.

In Person: Director Jill Campbell, Producers Barry Greenstein and Gregory Gerhard,  Subjects Kenny and Natasha Anderson
