Chris Kaman Reveals Childhood Misdiagnosis on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines”

January 15, 2008
On Sunday, January 13th Clippers’ center Chris Kaman revealed on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” that as a child he was misdiagnosed with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).Kaman, who is in the midst of an All-Star caliber season, is averaging a career-high 17.9 points, 13.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game.

The Clippers center has been working with Royer and Neurofeedback technology since last July. The technology requires Kaman to sit in front a computer screen that monitors his brain waves.
