Michigan Collecting Sons of Former NBA Stars

Michigan just received a verbal commitment from junior Glenn Robinson III (son of the Big Dog). When Robinson matriculates in 2012, the Michigan roster should include Jordan Dumars (son of Joe), Jon Horford (son of Tito) and Tim Hardaway Jr. From the NWI Times: “Glenn Robinson III was in Ann Arbor, Mich., recently visiting the University of Michigan, where he met Tim Hardaway Jr., a freshman in the Wolverines’ program. ‘We played some games of bags,’ Robinson said. ‘It was a lot of fun.’ The two have a lot in common. Both share the names of their fathers, who were stars in college and the NBA. And now that Robinson, a 6-foot-6 junior at Lake Central, has verbally committed to play at Michigan, they will have even more in common. [...] The NBA fit in Ann Arbor doesn’t end with Robinson and Hardaway. Michigan also has sophomore guard Jordan Dumars (Joe Dumars) and freshman forward Jon Horford (Tito Horford) to round out their ‘sons of the NBA’ roster.”

    But it’s not complete until they sign Sprinkles Rambis, son of Kurt.

    Yea, they should look for Austin Rivers. And try to find Jordan’s son.hahah

    Now all they need to do is lure Shawn Kemp Jr. to join them! That would be fun to watch. Maybe see some expressions that really resemble their fathers and see them do certain types of plays perhaps?(i.e. crisp ball movement, the killer crossover,then finally the ally-oop!)

    There’s a whole roster of Kemp jrs out there, Rasta

    lol ricochet that’s what i was going to say. Shawn Kemp spawned so many you would think at least one of them would inherit his beastly athleticism.

    I think Steve Nash son, LeBryan Nash should go to Michigan too.

  • RastaMonsta

    Lol! I was talking about one of his oldest kids who was supposed to go to the Crimson Tide.

    Kevin Kemp inherited his father’s freakish hops, if nothing else…

    I like that Dumars named his son after his nemesis.

    what the heck is a game of bags?

  • dsleepy

    i miss tim hardaway (sr). I hope he passed down the killer cross to his son so I can see it in the nba again (one day)

  • Tim

    It’s funny because growing up playing some ball in Detroit, I played against Juwan Howard’s son and Al Horford’s brother- they’re just all over that place!

  • Dillantradamus

    Wait… Do you SERIOUSLY think LeBryan Nash is related to Steve Nash?
    Because you might need to do a side by side comparison to see your massive misconception.
