Derrick Coleman Biography

Number One Draft Pick, New Start In Philadelphia, Trouble In Charlotte, Back To PhiladelphiaCONTACT INFORMATION


American basketball player

Derrick Coleman represents the kind of elite athlete that achieves such success and notoriety so early in his career that he develops a seriously skewed view of his own importance in the world, and even in his sport. The undeniably talented power forward has a record marred by questionable choices that have affected him both on and off the court. Coleman has worn out his welcome with two of the three teams he has played for professionally, and his "bad boy" behavior has landed him in legal trouble as well.


Address: Derrick Coleman, Philadelphia 76ers, 3601 S. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA 19148.
