Rather than play college basketball, Green chose to blaze a different path and join the G-League Ignite straight after his high school basketball career concluded. With Green on the path to stardom, he'll be in direct competition with his girlfriend to see which of the two is the bigger celebrity.
In fact, she dated a famous rapper's son.

Jalen Green Basketball Career
Jalen Green was born in Merced, California, but grew up in Fresno and attended San Joaquin Memorial High School for three years before transferring to Prolific Prep where he was an All-American. The shooting guard was also named MVP of the U-17 FIBA World Cup in 2018 and won a gold medal in 2019, this time alongside fellow top NBA draft pick Cade Cunningham.
The Filipino-American basketball player played one season for the G-League Ignite, scoring 17.9 points per game and shooting 36.5 percent from downtown. He's been dubbed as a "unicorn" and is considered to be one of the best players in the draft. Green had offers from various colleges such as USC, which would've kept him close to home in Los Angeles, however, he turned them all down in favor of the G-League despite being ESPN's No. 1 ranked shooting guard in his class.
Heading to the G-League seemed to pay off financially for Green, who reportedly boasts an estimated net worth over $1 million already. When he signs the lucrative rookie contract with whatever NBA team lands him in the draft, that figure is sure to rise.
