There are some things we can tell you about Mr. Brooks before meeting Sherry Silvey:
Scott Williams Brooks was born on July 31, 1965. He’s originally from French Camp, California, and attended East Union High School in Monterey, CA. Sherry’s hubby played 10 seasons in the NBA. He appeared in 680 regular season games with Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks, and Cleveland Cavaliers. Brooks won an NBA Championship in 1994 while playing for the Rockets.
The Wizards’ head coach began his NBA coaching career in 2003 as an assistant coach for the Denver Nuggets. He worked through the 2006-07 season as an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings, joining the Thunder Organization the following season.
Scott Brooks reached the NBA Finals in 2012 while leading the Oklahoma City Thunder. He guided the team to an NBA-best 12-3 mark and in February 2012 he was named the NBA’s Western Conference coach of the month. Brooks was the Thunder’s head coach from 2008 to 2015 and then started coaching the Wizards in 2016.
Sherry Silvey also attended East Union High School, and that’s where she met Scott and started dating him. The couple got married on January 27, 1993, at Pebble Beach, on the 18th hole! This marriage honeymooned in Europe, before Scott returned to the Rockets for their 1993-94 championship season. These high school sweethearts have two children together: a daughter named Lexi, and their son, Chance Brooks.
Scott’s wife keeps a low profile. There are not many details about her out there, but we do know that Mr. Brooks wears colorful woven bracelets on his wrist because that’s how he demonstrates the huge bond he has with his wife and children, and even with their Portuguese water dog, Melo, who’s named after Lexi’s favorite player when Scott was in Denver!
