Step Curry's recent play got be to thinking who has been the best Father Son Combos ever. Here is a list of some of the notable ones in league history.

Bill Walton & Luke Walton
Jimmy Walker & Jalen Rose
Joe "Jellybean" Bryant & Kobe Bryant
Mike Dunleavy & Mike Dunleavy Jr.
Rick Barry & Jon Barry
Rick Barry & Brent Barry
Stephen Curry & Dell Curry
Matt Goukas & Matt Goukas Jr.
Henry Bibby & Mike Bibby
Coby Karl & George Karl
Ronald Brewer & Ronnie Brewer
Scott May & Sean May
Patrick Ewing & Patrick Ewing Jr.
Gerald Wilkins & Damien Wilkins
Gerald Henderson & Gerald Henderson Jr.

Three of these Combinations have won a Championship as players

Bill Walton (1977-Trailblazers, 1986- Celtics) and Luke Walton (2009 Lakers)
Brent Barry (2005 - Spurs) and Rick Barry (1975 - Warriors)
Matt Goukas Sr. (1947 Philadelphia Warriors) and Matt Jr. (1967 - 76ers)

Danny Ferry won a championship with the Spurs as a player (2003) and Bob Ferry won a championship as GM of the Washington Bullets (1978).

Who do you guys think is the best?

Steph Curry and Dell Curry look like the father/son combo with two great careers.

Obviously Joe & Kobe by default (because of Kobe) but if we're talking about more even, productive careers, Dell & Steph could end up being the best.

Steph will be much better than his dad.


Best father son combo in the NBA is Coby Karl & George Karl. They were so nice, they got cancer twice.

Kobe and his pops are the best, because Kobe is Kobe. But if your talking about which 2 had the 2 best careers, I'd have to say Rick and Brent Barry.

Calvin Murphy is the father of the year. He got a cake but his daughters got the icing.

Dell had a great career, he was just never a starter. In 1994 when he won 6th man of the year, he averaged 16 3 and 3 in just 26 minutes and shot 40% from the 3. Steph will have a better career, but he also has the benefit of being a starter from his first season.

I think the most balanced team would be Luke & Bill Walton. You have a great passer with size who can handle the ball feed it down low to a beast in the paint. Pretty legit right there.
