Sometimes the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
Such can be said of the 20-plus current NBA players whose fathers each enjoyed time in the league as well. Of course, two-time league MVP Stephen Curry is the most accomplished second-generation player in the game right now, but he is actually one of four second-generation players on the Warriors roster this season.
Want to feel old? Nothing ages you quite like watching a professional game that features the progeny of a player whose career you also followed. Or how about Carmelo Anthony playing against Rockets forward Kenyon Martin Jr. after spending nine seasons as the teammate of Kenyon Martin Sr.?
The picture says it all.
Below, find the complete list of second-generation NBA players in the 2021-22 season.
