Marcus Smart married his longtime girlfriend Maisa Hallum, with the couple tying the knot in California, last week.
According to People, Marcus Smart and Maisa Hallum got married in the presence of 300 close friends and family and Smart’s former Boston Celtics teammates Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown were there.
‘What can I say? Dreams do come true and this was the most incredible day,’ Smart said
‘Maisa is caring, thoughtful, supportive and my best friend. I can talk to her about anything and everything. Becoming husband and wife means becoming one.’
The couple, who are believed to have met in 2017, then reportedly headed to Bora Bora for a honeymoon.
A day before the wedding, the NBA star Marcus Smart posted on his Instagram: ‘Wow, I never thought I’d see the day. From a boy to a man, starting this new chapter with you is a blessing and more!
‘Thank you for fighting with me. When times get hard we never waver. Here’s to Mr and Mrs Smart… I love you.’
When Smart returns, his focus will inevitably turn to the upcoming NBA season.
Smart was traded from the Celtics to the Memphis Grizzlies in July and when he joined, vowed to become a leader in the locker room.
‘That’s who I am,’ Smart said to Chris Vernon in an interview. “That’s who I was with Boston.
‘That’s one of the reasons why my name and my reputation proceeds me so much, because I am that guy.
‘I’m also not the guy to just talk about it, I’m going to go out there and show you my actions as well.’
The preseason campaign for the Grizzlies starts on October 8 with a warmup game against the Indiana Pacers.
The NBA season itself starts for Marcus Smart and his new team on October 25, at home to the New Orleans Pelicans.
