Has anyone had a more random career path than Rex Chapman? On Friday, ESPN will debut a new E:60 entitled “Being Rex Chapman,” which chronicles Rex’s journey from Kentucky to the NBA, through the shoplifting/opioid episode, and now, social media stardom.
With over 575,000 followers on Twitter, Rex has made a second living sharing funny clips. Adult Swim even made an online stream dedicated to his Block or Charge memes, which Rex and David Helmers host each Thursday night. This morning, ESPN shared a preview of the E:60, which includes a familiar voice:

Please give this 1-minute of your time.
