Ranking the Best Father-Son Teams in NBA History

18. Doc and Austin Rivers

Career stats: Doc Rivers: 10.9 ppg, 5.7 apg, 3.0 rpg, 1.8 spg  / Austin Rivers: 6.2 ppg, 2.1 apg, 1.8 rpg
Career years: Doc Rivers (1984 - 1996), Austin Rivers (2013 - Present)
Accolades: Doc Rivers: 1x All-Star

Doc Rivers had a solid NBA career and an even better one as a head coach. He served as a viable role player on playoff teams with Dominique Wilkins and Patrick Ewing. And these days he's the head coach of the Boston Celtics and has a ring and a couple trips to the Finals to show for it. His son Austin, on the other hand, came out of Duke with a lot of hype and is struggling to live up to it. Austin has only played one season, so there's still hope for him.
