Rick Fox was born in Canada of Caribbean and Italian ancestry. At 13 years old, Fox began to devotedly pursue basketball. Following high school, he went on to play at The University of North Carolina, where he honed the skills needed to enter the National Basketball Association (NBA). In 1991, he was selected as a first round draft pick by The Boston Celtics where he remained until 1997.
