Bundle of Joy

In my ongoing catalog of notable parent-child NBA relationships, I learned today that Javale McGee of the Wizards is the son of a former WNBA player. The article tells us that McGee is the only son of a WNBA player to ever make the NBA, which sounds like an amazing factoid until you consider that the WNBA only began in 1997. I would not be surprised if other NBA players had ball-playing mothers. McGee's father was also a college basketball star and was drafted back in 1985, but never made the L.

I was considering adding McGee to my fantasy team, but I just don't think he has what it takes.
