He’s teamed up with Cleveland Cavaliers player Dwayne Wade on a new basketball documentary, Shot in the Dark, about the amazing story of Chicago native Tyquone Greer who went from being shot at a house party to showing up at the high school game in crutches that sent his team into the top 4. With both Chance and Dwayne being natives of Chicago, they understand Tyquone’s experience growing up in the city as well as the racial and socio-economic aspects that come with it.

“Basketball empowered me to overcome the challenges of growing up on the south side of Chicago,” Wade said. “The odds were stacked against me, and the game changed the course of my life. It’s important to share these true stories of triumph to inspire the next generation to achieve their dreams when faced with life’s obstacles.”
