Perhaps one of the luckiest guys in the world, Marko Jaric is not only a star basketball player on the Minnesota Timberwolves and in a serious relationship with one of the world’s most beautiful woman, Victoria Secret Model Adriana Lima, but this Serbian born athlete is also a:
·       Real estate mogul
·       Successful website owner
·       Owns the Italian clothing line “Macchia”
  
Marko Jaric was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. He is the son of Srecko Jaric who is considered one of the greatest international basketball players ever. Originally an early entry candidate for the 1998 NBA Draft but withdrew his name from consideration to sign with Fortitudo Bologna. He did enter the NBA Draft in 2000 when he was selected as the 30th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers. Jaric was traded to the Timberwolves in August 2005 along with Lionel Chalmers by the Clippers in exchange for Sam Cassell.
 
With this years NBA basketball season coming to an end, look for Marko spending more time in New York and LA (and getting used to life with constant paparazzi) with his girlfriend, Adriana Lima. Jaric enjoys spending time in his home country of Yugoslavia and Italy. Along with Tony Parker from the San Antonio Spurs, Pau Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies and Andrei Kirilenko from the Utah Jazz, he served as a coach for “Basketball without Boarders,” a basketball camp for young people held in Treviso, Italy during the summer of 2003.  Jaric also takes part in the teamwork at the table Thanksgiving event at St. Joseph’s Center in Venice where he helps distribute food baskets and turkeys to families.

Mark Jackson, the former Knicks point guard, hinted that he might like to coach the Knicks, and got the approval of former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. Donnie Walsh, the new Knicks president, fired Isiah Thomas as coach on Friday and confirmed that Jackson was a candidate for the job. Walsh said it would take “a special person” to overcome a lack of coaching experience. But he has hired rookies in the past, including Thomas and Larry Bird in Indiana.

Mark Jackson — born in Brooklyn, a star point guard at St. John’s and a Knick for five seasons has obvious appeal in New York. The Knicks drafted Jackson with the 18th pick in 1987, and he teamed with Patrick Ewing to lead them into the playoffs the next five years. Jackson retired in 2004 with the second-most assists in N.B.A. history.  Jackson was often lauded as an intelligent player who served as a virtual coach on the court.  Former NBA standout Mark Jackson is also a game and studio analyst for ABC broadcasts of the NBA.  Jackson serves as a studio analyst for the NBA Sunday Countdown pre-game show on ABC with host Dan Patrick and analyst Michael Wilbon from the site of the ABC NBA Sunday game broadcast each week.  Jackson provides analysis during the game, paired courtside with ESPN and ABC lead play-by-play commentator Mike Breen.
