“I knew I had to do something. I knew I was going to do something.”

In 1966, Jerry Chambers became the only collegiate basketball player to earn Most Outstanding Players without playing in the NCAA Finals. After playing for four seasons in the NBA, Chambers retired and began working for Los Angeles Parks and Recreation. He has been coaching and mentoring up and coming athletes in Los Angeles for over 25 years. Once “a fool for basketball,” he has now found his true calling.
