Welcome to the family business. Horace Grant played 17 seasons, won four titles with the Bulls and Lakers, was second-team All-Defense four times and an All-Star once. Identical twin Harvey played 11 seasons. Harvey’s oldest son, Jerai, played in Latvia last season after previous stops in Italy, Australia and Israel. Another son, Jerami, was a second-round pick of the 76ers last June and turned in a better rookie season than most first-rounders, playing good defense while being assigned to guard everyone from power forwards to point guards. And now Harvey’s third-oldest son, Jerian, is likely to be drafted in the first round Thursday night, as high as the teens, as a solid pass-first point guard with the experience of four seasons at Notre Dame.
From brothers Horace and Harvey in consecutive drafts in 1987 and ’88 to brothers Jerami and Jerian — sons of Harvey, nephews of Horace — in consecutive drafts in 2014 and ’15.
Just for us to be in the NBA together like my dad and my uncle were, it’s just something that you can’t even explain.
