Brotherly love is palpable across all sports. NBA is no exception to that. They have seen brothers who have donned threads of oppositions and has chosen to take the yard but that has not resulted in any love lost. They have duked it out with all hears on the line and have put the finest show for display.

Here are five brotherly duos who have been a part of the NBA and have been doing rounds like none other. From champions to grinders, from magicians to basketballing folklore, these duos have been a treat for the sore eyes.

#1 Stephen Curry and Seth Curry

The iconic point guard for the Golden State Warriors, Steph Curry or Stephen Curry whatever you want to call him has undoubtedly been a reckoning force in the NBA echelons. One of the finest executors of the three-pointers, Curry has revolutionized the sport in his own glamorous way. With 4 NBA championships, 2 NBA MVPs, 10 NBA All-Stars and countless laurels, Steph Curry is one of the finest to have taken the court. His brother Seth Curry may not have racked up accolades like him but nonetheless, his showdowns in the NBA ranks have been fine enough to keep him moving across franchises. From 482 games that he has played so far, he has managed an average of 10.4 points per game while adding another decent stat of 2.1 rebounds too.


#2 Lonzo Ball and LaMelo Ball

Another fine point-guard on our list will have to be the Chicago Bull PG, Lonzo Ball. Hailing all the way from UCLA Bruins, Ball rocked up the high-school circuit like none other. He started off his professional career for Los Angeles Lakers while following that up with a move to New Orleans Pelicans. After spending a couple of years at the Pelicans, he is currently with the Bulls. From 252 games, he has averaged 11.9 points per game while rebounding a staggering 5.7 times. Selected by the Hornets in the 2020 draft, Lonzo’s younger brother have done an excellent job of impressing the NBA fans until now.

#3 Dominique Wilkins and Gerald Wilkins

This is one is a blast from the past as Dominique Wilkins, a star whose career spanned from the early 80s to the late 90s, had quite a significant impact in the NBA rankings with a legacy that screamed brilliance for the Atlanta Hawks. He was a part of the NBA All Star team a staggering nine times while being a part of the NBA All-Rookie First team in 1983. His legacy didn’t just stall in America as his arrival in Europe brought a wave of laurels too where he lifted the EuroLeague in 1996. His brother, Gerald Wilkins also showed tremendous grit and gumption on the basketball court, making the right set of ripples for New York Knicks in the earlier half of his career while going on to show his sparkling brilliance for Cleveland Cavaliers, Vancouver Grizzlies and Orlando Magic in the latter half of his career.

#4 Marc Gasol and Pau Gasol

Two decades of stellar showmanship laced with conviction and brilliance is what defined Marc Gasol. With the first three years being spent in Europe where he plied his trade for FC Barcelona and CB Girona, Gasol carved a reputation for himself which was too hard to be overlooked by the NBA. The big wolves came knocking in no time whatsoever as he joined the Memphis Grizzlies in 2008 and spent a staggering 11 years with the franchise while moving to Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers in the coming years. He eventually shifted to Europe again as Basquet Girona identified him as the right man for their center responsibilities. Pau Gasol was no mug with greatness either who followed a similar route of making the right noises earlier in Europe before hammering down in USA. He started with the Catalans and then arrived in Memphis where the Grizzlies kept him for six years before he chose to don the threads of Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs and Milwaukee Bucks in the forthcoming years. He bagged the NBA championship in two consecutive years and was a part of the NBA All Star team a stunning six times.


#5 Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thanasis Antetokounmpo

Picked as the part of the very first round in the 2013 draft, Giannis Antetokounmpo has been a titan unparalleled. Almost carrying forth the Milwaukee Bucks single-handedly, Giannis has spent 11 years with the franchise storming through the ranks of greatness. He has lifted the NBA championship in 2021, was the MVP of the 2021 final, was the NBA MVP twice, has been a part of the NBA All Star team a staggering eight times, have been a part of the All NBA first team an overwhelming eight times and the list goes on and on. Thanasis has started his career at the same time as his brother but he is still to kiss the skies like his sibling. But then the kind of solidity that he brings along with him is pretty good which has made him quite a valuable pick for the likes of New York Knicks, and Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA.
