Basketball | 6/4/20

Making it to the NBA is difficult, but some families are born to play basketball. Father and son duos aren’t uncommon in the association, and while many stayed under the radar during their career, others have made a significant impact on the sport.

Dell and Stephen Curry are pretty much legends when it comes to three-pointers, while Doc Rivers is the first man to coach his son at the professional level. Keep scrolling; the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with these father-son duos.

Nothing quite says “following in my father’s footsteps” quite like Patrick Ewing and Patrick Ewing Jr. Not only did the two play for Georgetown while in college, but they also both played for the New York Knicks at some point in their NBA career.

But as far as their stats go, we have to say Ewing Sr. had a more prominent career. Not only was he an 11-time All-Star, but he’s also a Hall of Famer. Oh, he was also showcased in Space Jam, so there’s that claim to fame, too.
