Earl "The Pearl" Monroe Talks Life, Hoops, and Being Chased By The Klan

Earl "The Pearl" Monroe is one of the greatest basketball players of all-time. He played for only two teams during his career, the Baltimore Bullets and the New York Knicks. Monroe won an NBA Championship, was a four-time All-Star, and was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame back in 1990.

With the Knicks, Monroe and Walt Frazier formed one of the best backcourt tandems in league history known as the "Rolls Royce Backcourt." Monroe was known for his flashy style-of-play. Overall, Monroe played in 926 NBA career games, scoring 17,454 total points with 3,594 assists on 46% shooting. He averaged 18.8 points, 3.9 assists and 3.0 rebounds in his career.

Monroe joined Chad to share stories from his book "Earl The Pearl My Story." He discusses his life, basketball, haunted houses, and an incredible story when he was chased by the Klan in rural Virginia. You can hear the conversation on the latest episode of the "What's Chad Doing" podcast.
