The NBA is living proof that sometimes talent can indeed run in the family. There are currently, by my count, seven sets of brothers playing in the league.
Some are twins, some are All-Stars and some are even teammates.
Having brothers compete against each other at the professional level isn't a new trend. In NBA history, there have been over 50 brother combos who have stepped foot on an NBA court.
Horace and Harvey Grant, Dominique and Gerald Wilkins, as well as Brent and Jon Barry are some of the more noteworthy siblings.
In 2013-14, that tradition will continue. Even more basketball families will feel the immense sense of pride that comes with having more than one member be a part of one of the greatest pro sports leagues on the planet.
So, with that being said, which NBA brothers stand heads and tails above the rest? Which family has all of the bragging rights?
Statistics, career accomplishments and individual success were all taken into account when comprising this list. In some cases, one particular brother was able to elevate him and his sibling up the list based solely on his own merit.
For the record, the Hansbrough brothers—Tyler and Ben—won't be included on this list. Ben recently signed a one-year deal with Gran Canaria, so he is no longer in the league.
The same holds true for the Pargo brothers—Jeremy and Jannero—as Jeremy will be suiting up for CSKA Moscow in the VTB United League next season.
