Raised by a single mother who worked at American Airlines in order to provide for Bobby and his three younger brothers, unfortunately they still lost their house, and had to rent cheaper houses in rather unsettling neighborhoods.
Luckily, Bobby chose the basketball court instead of the streets, and while a student at Hall High School earned a number of recognitions, including McDonald’s and Parade All-American honors, while he was also named Mr. Basketball of Arkansas for the 2013 year. Following a successful high school career, he committed to the University of Arkansas to play for the Arkansas Razorbacks basketball team, being the first in-state signing of a McDonald’s All-American since Corliss Williamson.
In his first season, Bobby played in 34 games and averaged 12.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game, which earned him Southeastern Conference All-Freshman team and second-team All-SEC selection. The following year, Bobby significantly improved his numbers, averaging 17.5 points, with 8.8 rebounds while also adding 1.4 blocks, 1.2 assists, and 1.1 steals per game, which won him SEC Player of the Year, Consensus second-team All-American, and First-team All-SEC honors.
Encouraged by his success in college basketball, Bobby declared for the 2015 NBA Draft and was chosen by Chicago Bulls as the 22nd pick overall. He became a professional on the 7th July 2015, signing a rookie contract with the franchise. He made his debut on the 3rd November 2015 and had 10 points in a loss to the Charlotte Hornets. He had a memorable performance against the New York Knicks on the 19th December, when he achieved a double-double result, with 20 points and 11 rebounds. He finished the season with 7.0 points and 5.4 rebounds average per game from limited court time. The second season saw no improvements, recording lower average statistics, but managed to set a new game career-high in points, with 22 against the Utah Jazz.
Following the Bulls’ rebuilding, Bobby has become one of the main offensive forces in the new team, and has used increased playing time to good effect, recently setting a new game scoring record with 38 points, but that wasn’t enough since his Bulls still lost to the Philadelphia 76ers. So far, he has played in 49 games in the 2017-2018 season and has averaged 13.0 points per game, alongside 6.4 rebounds.
When it comes to his personal life, Bobby has been in a relationship with Kanesha Woods since 2015. There is no further information about his personal affairs.
