In most walks of life, sons at some point look to get out from under the shadows of their fathers and make themselves into their own men. Basketball players are no different. FanHouse's Chris Tomasson talked to Pacers forward Mike Dunleavy about a chance he, a pending free agent, could end up playing for his dad, unemployed coach Mike Dunleavy.â†µ
Lil' Dun was ... less than enthused.
"I'd prefer not to play for a family member. But if it happens, it happens ... It's not something that I don't think either one of us is trying to make happen."â†µ
In fairness to Lil' Dun, just about every NBA player prefers not to play for Coach Dunleavy.
