Lydecia's husband is a teacher like her and is also a businessman. Both of them have maintained a successful married life so far.

Richaun may be the most popular but he isn't the family's only son. She has three other children alongside the NBA Superstar. Richaun was the youngest of four boys.

Dunkman, in an interview, recalled the time he grew up with his siblings. He also credited them for making him the player he is today. As a kid, he would play the dribble game with his brothers. And they did not make it easier for him. He said:

It was a tough game, but I always enjoyed it. No rules, no fouls; just try to make it. They’d beat up on me a lot, but they're part of the reason why I play the way I do now. I started playing angry, just to beat them, and I kind of kept that throughout my career.
