LaMarcus Aldridge's Bio

Basketball players are tall; however, LaMarcus is in a different league altogether. He stands with a magnificent height of 6 feet and 11 inches (2.1 m) - he weights 109 kgs.

But, it is not luck that LaMarcus has been gifted with such astonishing physique; they come from his parents. His mother Georgia stands at 6 feet 2 inches while his dad, Marvin, has a height of 6 feet 6 inches.

LaMarcus Nurae Aldridge - aged 34 - was born on 19 July 1985. He spent his childhood with his older brother LaVontae in Dallas, Texas.

Pursuing higher education, despite being drafted in the NBA, LaMarcus decided to go to college. He enrolled at the University of Texas after a conversation with the legendary NBA player, Shaquille O'Neal.

Although LaMarcus maintains a successful career, the same cannot be said regarding his personal life. He has been a participant in a failed relationship in the past. The NBA star was romantically linked with Chelsy McDaniel. In late 2008, Chelsy became pregnant with LaMarcus’ first child.

The player left a playoff match and flew to San Antonio to see his son's birth. Jaylen Lea Aldridge was born on the 23rd of April 2009.

Moving on from the past, LaMarcus has mended his heart and found someone new. However, he has kept this relationship away from the eyes of the media and is yet to introduce his wife-prospect. Nevertheless, from his relationship with his mystery woman, the basketball player has become a father to a second son. LaMarcus Aldridge Jr. was born in August 2011.
