Can Shane Larkin end up with a pro career like his father's?

Former Miami Hurricanes point guard Shane Larkin was drafted by the Hawks with the 18th overall pick on Thursday and then traded to the Mavericks. Larkin, son of baseball's Barry, stands at 5-foot-11 and has the speed and agility (two words that also described his pops back in the day) to be a good NBA player. How good? Hall of Fame-Barry good? Who knows?

We just know he definitely picked the right sport.
