The Timberwolves young dynamic duo of Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine are officially now known as the “Bounce Brothers.” It’s their response to Golden State’s “Splash Brothers” made up of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
I’m assuming Ricky Rubio is Uncle Ricky (Slick Rick reference) and Glenn Robinson III is a step-brother because he also has serious hops.
But my favorite “real” brothers with bounce would have to be Dominique and Gerald Wilkins.
Best dunk relatives, hands down, goes to Vince Carter and T-Mac who are cousins.
As much as I would like to see it, I don’t expect Wiggins and Zach to put on a highlight show like the Vinsanity years but I am expecting a lot of dunks and hopefully a few more wins.
