Ranking the Best Father-Son Teams in NBA History Jim E. Paxson

7. Jim E., Jim J., and John Paxson

Career stats: Jim E. Paxson: 8.0 ppg, 1.6 apg, 4.5 rpg / Jim J. Paxson: 14.3 ppg. 2.9 apg, 2.0 rpg, 1.2 spg / John Paxson: 7.2 ppg, 3.6 apg, 1.2 rpg
Career years: Jim E. Paxson (1956 - 1958),  Jim J. Paxson (1980-1990), John Paxson (1983 - 1994)
Accolades: Jim J. Paxson: 2x All-Star, 1x All-NBA, John Paxson: 3x NBA champion (1991-1993)

John Paxson is best known for hitting one of the most clutch shots in NBA history. You know it well, the famed three-pointer that won game six of the 1993 NBA Finals between Michael's Bulls and Barkley's Suns. But people seem to always forget his older brother Jim. The elder sibling was much better than his little brother, making a couple All-Star games and a All-NBA Second Team nod. Injuries cut his career short but he still managed to finish it with a 14 ppg scoring average. Their dad, Jim Paxson Sr., only played two seasons in the Association, but must feel like his legacy was fulfilled by the success of his two sons' NBA careers.
