Father/Son NBA Title Notes

June 15, 2018

A note involving the Golden State Warriors’ back to back titles in 2017 and 2018, is that the father and son Mychal and Klay Thompson played on repeat NBA champions, 30 years apart.

Mychal did so with the ’87 and ’88 Lakers, by the way the first repeat NBA champions in 19 years.

Klay and his Warriors are the sixth team to win at least two straight crowns since the ’88 Lakers.

They are the fourth father and son players to each win NBA crowns (Matt Goukas Sr. and Matt Goukas, Rick and Brent Barry, Bill and Luke Walton, the others).

Interesting round numbers as Goukas Sr. was on the first recognized NBA champions, the 1947 Philadelphia Warriors with son Matt on the great Philadelphia 76ers title team, 20 years later in 1967.

All but the Waltons, had at least one member of the father/son title duo as a member of the Warriors. Rick Barry having led the Warriors to the 1975 title.
