Luckily, their mother was always there to shield them from indulging in criminal activities.

Smart's brother, Todd, died of cancer in 2004, aged 33. As a result, Marcus wore No. 3 and No. 33 during his high school and university careers to honour his late brother. Todd was also a basketball player who wore jersey No.3.
