Doubtful. Baseball players can play into their 40's, whereas a basketball player playing in their 40's is very rare.

You mean playing at the same time? or working together (coach and player)?

Playing together might be a stretch.

NBA careers are generally shorter than MLB careers and the wear and tear is a lot worse, meaning people playing into their 40's is extremely rare. This combined with the 1 year of college rule means it's HUGELY unlikely.

Playing together is tough. In baseball, you can technically play in the Majors at 18. In basketball you have to wait a littler longer.

Also, the average career of an NBA player is much less to that of an MLB player(excluding pitchers)



My answer: no.

Lebron wants to be the first. I just know it. They would be great together too, they both act the same age...what is Bron Jr now? 4? 5? haha

If someone has their kid at like 16 or 17 by the time their kid is 19 or 20 and in the NBA the father is 37. So, I would say its possible but highly unlikely.

No, esp with how today's NBA works with players having to go to at least one year of college before they can join the NBA draft. The minimal age difference between father and son would be around 18 years. 95% of NBA careers don't even last that long.

Delonte and LeBron!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! I don't know why that is soooooo funny. Maybe it's because I hate LeBron, or because it's Delonte West! HAHAHAHA!

I don't think that'll ever happen, the father would have to be at the least 40 and the son at the oldest 20, since the new cba will have a new age limit.

Lebron and Delonte come to mind, besides that, i really doubt it.

It's rare in baseball where it is easier to occur so I would say nearly impossible for a father son player duo.

LMAO!

Didn't even think about Delonte and Bron

Other than that, Don Nelson and Donnie Nelson both were with the Mavs, in management though
