Chris Duhon ran drills and helped inspire the next generation of basketball player during his 10th and final camp recently held at Fritchie Park in Slidell.
Duhon was a star player at Salmen High School in Slidell in the 1990s. He was named Louisiana’s Mr. Basketball in 2000, won an NCAA championship at Duke University in 2001 and had a nine-year run in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers.
Duhon has accepted a job as assistant coach at Marshall University, and NCAA regulations do not allow college coaches to hold youth camp.
The recent camp was part of a week’s worth of activities that included a charity golf tournament and a dance cheer camp led by his wife, Andrea.
The activities all benefit the Chris Duhon Stand Tall Foundation and its scholarship program. For information, visit www.chrisduhonstandtall.org.
