If you weren't sure what former Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Larry Sanders is up to these days, he just got engaged. During halftime of a game in the Big 3 league, Sanders proposed to his longtime girlfriend.
In 2015, Sanders stepped away from the NBA following issues with marijuana use and punctuality as well as dealing with anxiety and depression. After a brief stint in 2017 with the Cavs, it looked like Sanders was going to give the NBA another go. However, after just five games, Sanders called it on his professional career once again.
“It left a bad taste in my mouth," Larry Sanders says. "I had really worked myself to get back to the league." https://t.co/yZ9l1ip0KA— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) June 22, 2019
Just several years later, the first-round pick was drafted third overall in the Big 3 league, and now he popped the question to his girl. He's having a hell of a year!
Larry Sanders has found his peace outside of the NBA, while still carrying on his passion for basketball. After getting engaged during a game he was playing in, it seems as though Sanders couldn't be happier at the moment.
