The name of one of the greatest power forwards in NBA history, Karl Malone, has been getting a lot of attention as he was recently selected to judge the All-Star Dunk Contest. However, this has also brought to light his son, Demetress Bell, who plays no part in the game anymore and is leading a comfortable lifestyle in retirement.
Bell was born in Louisiana to a 20-year-old father and a 13-year-old mother. He began his career as a softball player and later shifted to basketball after high school. His hard work paid off and he earned a scholarship at Northwestern State University to play college-level basketball. He was a star in the sport and even played in 88 fixtures over three seasons.
Despite his impressive performance, he didn’t have any major accomplishments until the end of his junior year when he was named first-team All-Louisiana and All-Southland Conference player. This was enough to impress the Buffalo Bills who drafted him in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL draft.
Bell spent four years with the Buffalo Bills and a year with the Philadelphia Eagles before retiring from the sport. He has a net worth of $5 million and is in a good position to lead a comfortable life. Currently, he is not active on social media and is spending his time away from the spotlight enjoying a peaceful retirement.
