Malcolm Brogdon: biography
Malcolm Moses Adams Brogdon, who was born on the 11th of December, 1992, is a basketball player from Georgia. He is known for playing in the NBA as a point guard and shooting guard.
Childhood and youth
Malcolm was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He was raised in a well-established family; his dad, Mitchell, worked as a lawyer, and he even hosted a court show. His mom, Jahn, was chair of the psychology department. Malcolm's parents got divorced when he was only 11. He also had two brothers, Gino and John. During his childhood, Malcolm studied at a Christian private high school in Atlanta. Then, in 2011, he enrolled at a college in Virginia.
Malcolm's professional basketball career started back in 2016. His first team was the Milwaukee Bucks.

On October 26, 2016, he participated in the Bucks' season-opening game. A plantar fascia injury in Malcolm's right foot caused him to be sidelined indefinitely on March 16 of this year, 2019.
