Ben McLemore Wife, Dating, Parents, Family
Ben McLemore is a rising star in the realms of basketball, who was drafted by Sacramento Kings in 2013 as their 7th overall pick.
The NBA star, who stands at the towering height of 6 feet 5 inches (1.95 m), averaged nearly 16 points during his one season with the Kansas Jayhawks and helped the team bag a Big-12 championship.
Well, many might not know, but Houston Rockets' Ben almost had to look for other career options at the beginning. Since he had transferred schools a lot, his transcripts were unclear, due to which NCAA initially declared him ineligible to play.
Luckily, things sorted out later, and the NBA star got another shot at basketball.
