Mookie Blaylock spent his childhood in his hometown, where he attended Garland High School, and played basketball; upon matriculation, he enrolled at Midland College, where he continued to play basketball for the college team, earning NJCAA All American honors in 1987. He then transferred to the University of Oklahoma, distinguishing himself as an excellent point guard and participating there in two NBA All-Defensive first-team selections, having more than 200 steals. Thanks to him, the Sooners competed for the 1988 NCAA title game, but were defeated by the Kansas Jayhawks.

In the following year, Mookie’s professional playing career began, when he was selected in the 1989 NBA Draft as the 12th overall pick in the first round by the New Jersey Nets, so he signed a rookie contract, which marked the beginning of his net worth. He stayed with the Nets for three seasons, until 1992.

In 1993, Mookie was traded to the Atlanta Hawks, with which he signed a contract so adding a considerable amount of money to his net worth. He played seven years under the coach Lenny Wilkens, excelling and leading the team in three-point field goals and steals two years in a row, becoming the only Hawks player who reached that success, alongside Alvin Robertson, Allen Iverson, Magic Johnson and Chris Paul. In 1994, Mookie was selected to play for the NBA All-Star Game. During the following season, he set the Hawks’ records for three-pointers made (231) and attempted (623). He finished his stint with the team as an all-time franchise leader in three-point field goals (4,073) and 1,321 steals. During his time with the Hawks, he was named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team in 1994 and 1995, the NBA All-Defensive Second Team in four consecutive years from 1996 to 1999, and twice the NBA steals leader in 1997 and 1998.

The 1999 season Mookie began as a member of the Golden State Warriors, which increased further his net worth. However, he finished his career there in 2002, as a bench player.

When it comes to speak about his personal life, Mookie Blaylock was married to Janelle Karas, with whom he has twins – Zack and Daron – both of them playing football for the University of Kentucky. Mookie’s current residence is in Zebulon, Georgia.
