Ron Mercer was twice named “Mr. Basketball” of Tennessee while at Goodpasture Christian School in Madison, Tennessee. He then transferred to Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia. Rated by Bob Gibbons to be the best prep player of the class of 1995, over Kevin Garnett, Vince Carter, Antwan Jamison, and Stephon Marbury.

Mercer had a very successful collegiate career having been an All-American and all-Southeastern Conference player at Kentucky and part of a national championship team in his freshman year. He was selected with the 6th overall pick of the 1997 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics.

Since retiring from the NBA, Ron still plays basketball, but now only on a leisurely basis. Today he prefers to share his knowledge and love for the game with others through coaching and hosting basketball camps. As an avid golfer, he also spends time pursuing his other hobbies, which include bowling, fishing, Muay Thai, and enjoying the occasional cigar.
