As a member of three consecutive NBA Championship teams with the Los Angeles Lakers, former basketball star Rick Fox was also no stranger to the world of Hollywood. Born on July 24, 1969 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Fox was raised by his father, Ulrich, and his mother, Diane Gerace, who was a world champion high jumper and women's pentathlete who represented her native Canada at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. When he was three years old, Fox moved to his father's native Bahamas, where he later played basketball for the Kingsway Academy in Nassau. Fox later played high school basketball in Warsaw, IN, where he was voted onto the Indiana All-Star team in 1987. From there, he became a star player at the University of North Carolina, helping to lead the Tar Heels to the NCAA Final Four in 1991.
