Rick Barry and Brent Barry

Rick Barry is known to be one of the greatest basketball players of his era and all time. In 14 NBA-ABA seasons, Barry made 6 All-NBA teams, 4 All-ABA teams, won Rookie of the Year in 1966, a scoring title in 1967, and a championship in 1975 to go along with a Finals MVP.

One of the many things Barry was well known for was his unorthodox free throw shot. But Barry was best known for his ability to score averaging 24.8 points per game for his career and having seasons of averaging 35.6 and 34 points per game.

Barry has five sons, with three making the NBA in Brent, Jon and Drew Barry. Brent Barry had a stint with the Heat and was acquired in the 1998 season at the trade deadline from the Los Angeles Clippers in which Miami traded Isaac Austin, Charles Smith and a first-round pick. The trade was a disappointing result for Miami, with Barry only playing 17 games for the Heat, and averaging 4.1 points on 37 percent shooting.

In his 14-year playing career, Brent Barry also played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls, Seattle Supersonics San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets. Barry's best accomplishments came during his tenure with the Clippers and Spurs. In Los Angeles, Barry made second team All-Rookie and won the Slam Dunk Contest the same year. And in San Antonio, Barry won two NBA championships in 2005 and 2007. Barry is currently the vice president of basketball operations for the Spurs.

Like the Paytons, Brent and Rick Barry have won at the highest level and can sit at the table of the few father-and-son duos who have accomplished an impressive feat.
