NBA players, as with most other professional athletes, tend to do plenty of showing off. Whether it be cars, clothing or jewelry, there always seems to be a new way to show the flash and style of what being a professional athlete brings. The new trend seems to be children.
With kids continually popping up on sidelines after games, playing a little basketball at halftime or jumping up onto the podium at a postgame interview, we get a cool peek into the personal lives of some of our favorite players.
Plus, it does wonders to dispel the notion that most professional athletes have multiple children from multiple women—otherwise known as the Shawn Kemp Stereotype.
Today's NBA player seems to be a more image-conscious type, realizing that any and everything they do will be dissected by the media, leading to more athletes becoming known as family men, which is definitely a cool thing.
It's great for the reputation of the league, plus a lot of their kids are downright hilarious.
