The Career of Carrie Cannon

Sadly, not much is known about her professional career, which is expected as she is the wife of a retired basketball player, not a current basketball champ’s wife.

Honestly, not many people search for Shawn Bradley, let alone his wife.

But from what many sources speculate, she had a promising career going on for herself before she met Shawn.

At present, we think that she has left her professional career behind and takes care of her paralyzed husband and her children.

Carrie Cannon Net Worth

Info regarding Carrie’s net worth is yet to be disclosed. We cannot estimate her net worth since we do not know much about her professional career either.

But fortunately, we have info on her husband, Shawn’s net worth. The former basketball star has a net worth of $27 million.

A brief bio of Shawn Bradley

Shawn Bradley is a basketball legend, and many players of his era gave him the utmost respect, including Michael Jordan, who tapped him to appear in the 1996 Space Jam project.

The Philadelphia 76ers drafted him as the second overall pick in the 1993 NBA draft. The first pick was Chris Webbers.

Moreover, he played as a center forward for the Brooklyn Nets, Dallas Maverick, and Philadelphia 76ers while standing 7 feet 6 inches tall. Now that’s a coincidence!

Also, Shawn was one of the tallest players to ever play for the NBA, and since he was a giant, he was nicknamed “The Stormin’ Mormon.”

However, he was not consistent in his shooting throughout his pro basketball career and did not have impressive rebound skills.

But he had a talent for blocking shots.

In his third season playing for the NBA league, he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets.

Similarly, he was traded to the Dallas Maverick, for which he played seven seasons before retiring from his pro basketball career following an injury.

Past relationship and kids

Before engaging himself with Carrie, Shawn was married to Annette Evertson. The couple got married in 1993 before Shawn made it to the big league.

After 25 years of marriage, the couple decided to separate, and in 2018 they officially divorced.

He had six kids with her; four daughters named Chelsea, Ciera, Charity, and Cheyenne, and two sons called Chase and Chance. 

We think that Shawn might be a little obsessed with the letter ‘C.’

Shawn often credited Annette for helping him through the darkest of times and being an amazing and supportive wife. Hence, their divorce news was a total shock for the fans as no one expected to hear such news.

On the other hand, Carrie Cannon is blessed with three children, a daughter named Haylie and two sons named Dubbie and Max.

Shawn raises the five children he had with Annette along with Carrie’s three kids.

“I have never been so busy after retirement. I have got five teenagers at home, got a new family, a new home, it’s crazy,” stated Shawn.

Social Media Links

Carrie occasionally posts on her social media accounts; it seems like she is not a big fan of the virtual world which is expected from a millennial. She also has a personal Facebook account.

Unlike Carrie Cannon, Shawn does not post ven occasionally as he does not use social media apps.

He has his handful of basketball in his younger days, and now he has his handful of kids he has to raise. So perhaps he has not had enough time to explore the virtual world.
