He has been called one of the five greatest college basketball players of all time. Many will remember David Thompson as the player who led the NC State Wolfpack to its first NCAA title in the 1973-74 season.

A year later, Thompson was the number one draft pick in both the NBA and ABA. When the two leagues merged, Thompson signed the largest contract in NBA history with the Denver Nuggets.

But Thompson's promising career soon came to a halt in the early 1980's when cocaine and alcohol abuse robbed him of his potential. After hitting rock bottom, Thompson began an arduous recovery process.

Today, he has been clean and sober for more than 15 years. He has found spiritual peace, and seeks help children make healthy decisions by telling his powerful story.
