So Klay thinks its a black league?

What gives you that idea? The kids are from Kevin Durant’s neighborhood, that few white kids live there was a choice made by white people.

NBofA Trivia:

Quote
Larry Nance Sr. was at the game Monday, watching his son make the two of them just the fifth father-son duo in NBA history to score 20 points in a game for the same team, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, out of the 20 father-son duos to have played for the same franchise.

So who are the other 4 Father & Son duos to score 20 for the same team?

(I don't know the answer so will be guessing along with you)

I'm kind of amazed 20 father-son combos played for the same team.

I think I've got one, but i'll let some guessing go on first.

Tough Q ...

off the top of my head I thought of about 6 F/S combos but I'm pretty sure or doubtful if they played for the same team



all WAGS

Jelly Bean and Kobe

Doc and Austin Rivers

Dell Curry and Boys

Mychal Thompson and Klay

Rick Barry and Boys

Bill and Luke Walton

Did Jimmy Walker and Jalen Rose play for the same team?  Rose seemingly played for everyone, but I don't think he played for the Pistons. What about Dunleavys?

The only one I'm sure of is Rick & Jon Barry.  Because I checked.

I thought it'd be for the Warriors, where Jon played one year, but he topped out at 19 points.
Both played for HOU very late in their careers and scored over 20 there.

Dell didn't play for the Warriors.
Jellybean didn't play for Lakes.

There's been plenty of father son duos (Harvey Grant has two sons in the NBA right now.  Old timers like van Breda Koffs and Schayes, etc).
They key is playing for the same team, and playing well there.

Apparently 20 played for the same team.
And 5 scored 20 points for the same team.
1. Larrys Nance
2. Rick & Jon Barry
3.
4.
5.

Not an easy question ...

Fired up the old brain and came up with another pair.
Hint: the team they did it for: NY Knicks.

What a great question.  Both Bibbys and Vandeweghes played for the Knicks.  None of them, I'd wager, averaged 20 ppg for them.

Ok, you got one.

5 Father & Sons scored 20 points for the same team.
1. Larrys Nance
2. Rick & Jon Barry
3. Doc & Austin Rivers
4.
5.

Doc came to NYK from LAC, where he spent one season.
Knix traded Marx Jax for an over 30 Doc who played one year in NY and then broke down.

20 points in a game, not per game.

1. Larrys Nance  (CLE)
2. Rick & Jon Barry  (HOU)
3. Doc & Austin Rivers  (LAC)
4. Ernie & Kiki Vandeweghe (NYK)
5.

I'll check on the Bibbys.
Edit: Mike played just 39 games in one season for NYK.  topped out at 16 points.  Broke down and retired.  Henry did it.  Didn't recall he was a Knick.

So one more still out there . . .

The Brewers?

Henry Bibby and Dean Meminger once had an incredible quarter in a playoff game.  When Holzman reinserted his starters. Frazier and Monroe, the Knicks crowd booed.  Holzman later on said "what did they think I was doing, putting in a couple of plumbers?"   One of the few signs that Holzman had a sense of humor.

Bibby and Meminger were PITA against the Celts in the play-offs.

It was probably '73, Meminger was hitting bombs before the 3 was around.Guy got hot.

shoulda remembered Dolph and Danny Schayes.

And i don't think I knew Jalen's Rose's father was Jimmy Walker.

Ron (4 games) & Ronnie Brewer (2 seasons) both played for CHI, but neither had a 20 point game there.

For now, I'm stumped on the 5th ...

Just looked up the Mike Dunleavys.
Both played for the Bucks.
Mike Sr. topped out at 17 points.
He only played 36 games over 2 injury-filled MIL years (then retired for 3 years but  came back 2 seasons for a combined 7 games for MIL).
But he did have a 21 Point game in the Conference Finals G5 v. Bos in 1984.

So I'm assuming playoffs count and the Mike Dunleavies are the 5th father-son duo to score 20 or more for the same team.

1. Larrys Nance  (CLE)
2. Rick & Jon Barry  (HOU)
3. Doc & Austin Rivers  (LAC)
4. Ernie & Kiki Vandeweghe  (NYK)
5. Mike Dunleavys  (MIL -- playoffs for Sr.)


Here's a list of Father-Son Duos who played in the NBA:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_second-generation_National_Basketball_Association_players

I didn't know that Jae Crowder's father (Cory) had been in the NBA.
Also didn't know that Winslow's Dad was an NBAer.
And Luke Kornet's Pops played 89 games over 2 seasons with MIL.
 
Here's a follow-up Q I got from that list:

Which 4 Father & Son combos have both won an NBA title?

(one is quite hard)
