Sons of Nbl players

I was just wanting to know how many sons of former Nbl players are starting to make a name for themselves. I only know Irving, Exum, Bolden and I just found out today about Archie Smith. He is the son of Andre Moore who played for my favourite team the Brisbane Bullets. I read that he has to choose between basketball and afl.

Any others?

Irving? Dredrick played SEABL with Bulleen but never NBL. Great player & would have kicked ass however if given the chance!

Durrell McDonald - now there is someone that well and truly slipped under my radar! Is he really an Aussie as I note he was born in the USA and has pretty well played all his basketball at high school level there too...

Dmac says his son has citzenship but nobody has contacted spoken to him about the boomers program. Was very close to coming to play in Australia apparently at SEABL or Champ men level.

Is Durrell a good NBL prospect? would he make a roster?

If he is half as good as his dad he would, but not all sons are as good, anyone seen him play?

Looking at the numbers he would be a Big V or SEABL level guys depending on the role he would play.

Just becuase you have a dad whom can play doesn't automatically mean you will be a star...cause i'm pretty sure Dmac had a few other kids and can't recall them having an impact at NBL level.

Another example is Bennie Lewis & Lewis Jnr....Jnr is pretty much now just an uneffiecent scorer at the state league level chasing $20K a season.
