Born in Madrid, Spain, Szczerbiak is the son of Marilyn and Walt Szczerbiak – American of Polish descent – and has two siblings, Will and Wendy. During his time in Madrid, Walt played for the Real Madrid basketball team and led the team to three European championships. When Walt retired from playing basketball, he took his family to the United States and settled in Long Island, New York.

When he was young, Szczerbiak attended Cold Spring Harbor High School, where he began to excel in basketball. With his consistent performance, he was rewarded with Nassau County’s preeminent boys basketball player – the Richard Sangler Award – but despite his best efforts, he failed to impress colleges and was not recruited.

Szczerbiak chose to study at Miami University, where he graduated from the University of Marketing’s Richard T. Farmer School of Business. During his studies, he also played on the school’s basketball team and stood out again. While with the RedHawks, Szczerbiak won several awards including being named MAC Player of the Year, Associated Press Second Team All American, and Basketball News and Sports Illustrated First Team All American.

Due to his outstanding performance in college, Szczerbiak decided to participate in the NBA Draft in 1999 and was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves as their sixth overall. This marked the beginning of his professional basketball career and began his fortune too.

Szczerbiak played for the Minnesota Timberwolves for eight years and enjoyed some memorable performances, such as the selection of coaches on the All-Star Team at the 2002 Western Conference. In 2006, however, he was traded with Dwayne Jones and Michael Olowokandi for the Boston Celtics. During his time with the Celtics, he suffered several injuries and was unable to play for a few months. The following year, Celtics decided to trade him to the Seattle SuperSonics, but he only spent a year with the team and was then traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Despite the multiple transfers, Szczerbiak continued to excel in sport. He played well during his time with the Cavaliers and helped the team advance through the first round of the 2008 playoffs. Unfortunately, he sustained another injury and decided to formally retire from the sport after 10 years. His years at the NBA not only catapulted him into the limelight, but also grew his fortune tremendously over the years.

Today Szczerbiak works as a basketball analyst for CBS College Sports and is also a member of the MSG network, for which he reports on the post-game broadcasts of the New York Knicks.

Szczerbiak is privately married to Shannon Ward, whom he met in college. The couple married in 2000 and have five children together.
