Ο γεννημένος στο Chicago (Illinois) Lamont Mack, έπαιξε στο High School με το Angelina Junior College στο Lufkin του Texas. Εκεί ήταν
"all-America who was ranked as the 21st-best junior college player by JuCoJunction.com ... Mike Mitchell of the Midwest Scouting Report called Mack one of the Top 10 junior college players in America ... a first team all-Texas Junior College selection, Mack averaged 16.5 points and seven rebounds while shooting .420 from three-point range and .720 from the line for head coach Guy Davis ..."
Επαιξε δυο χρόνια στο NCAA (τα πρώτα δυο δεν αγωνίστηκε - μάλλον περίπτωση "Σαρικόπουλου" με αλλαγή κολλεγίου και μη δυνατότητα συμμετοχής στους αγώνες). Τον Ιούλιο έπαιξε με την A&A Millworks κάποιους αγώνες

Τι έλεγε για τον εαυτό του στο site των 49ers :

Mack put up impressive numbers in the second half of the season.
What was different about the first and second halves of the year that led to your impressive improvement:
Coach had a pep talk with me. He needed me to step up and needed me to be in that 1-2 punch behind Leemire.

What was the biggest factor you had to adapt to once you joined the 49ers:
Having a little better IQ for the game. In DI, you have to be smarter with your moves, how you go about making your moves, your timing and knowing when it's a good shot and when it's a bad shot. Basically, the IQ for the game.

How are you approaching your role as a senior leader now that Leemire Goldwire has graduated:
I'm coming out being a leader and doing whatever the team needs. To step up in crucial times on offense or on defense, to get into a passing lane, get a steal, take a charge.

What part of your offensive game needs the most work:
Driving to the hole.

What part do you enjoy the most:
That deep three -- when you hit that and the crowd goes crazy.

Mack comes from Chicago:
How does our Queen City measure up to the Windy City:
The weather's great here. It's a nice city overall. I like the skyline and the people here are great.

You must be a Bulls fan, but what about the White Sox or Cubs:
White Sox -- I'm a Southside guy.

Mack is a 6-7; 230 lb. physical specimen:
If you couldn't play basketball, what sport would be your next choice:
Baseball -- that was my first love.

Mack asked to have his grandmother, Nelgie Jordan, listed in his bio:
What does your grandmother, in particular, stand for, in your eyes:
She pushed me to be the person I am today. She really influenced me a lot -- making sure I was always on track with everything, making sure I respected my elders. She made sure I didn't take anything for granted.
