Shortly after landing at LAX last Thursday, I happened to walk right past former NBA ballplayer Rick Fox. Fox’s movie star looks, marriage to Vanessa Williams and key contribution to three Lakers championship teams, have made him a very well known figure throughout Los Angeles.
The 6-7 Fox was immediately recognizable in his leather jacket and curly hair.
Some people noticed him, while others walked right past the man who more recently has starred in many of the Tyler Perry productions, as well as Dancing with the Stars.
Fox has also been romantically linked to actress Eliza Dushku, in the years since his 2005 divorce from Williams.
In an NBA crazed area like Southern California, Rick Fox’s celebrity will most likely remain intact for many years moving forward.
