Tim Hardaway’s son to declare for NBA draft

tim-hardaway-jrThe University of Michigan star Tim Hardaway Jr, will skip his senior year and declare for the NBA draft.

Hardaway Jr. averaged 14.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.4 assist, in his junior year for a team who made it to the NCAA finals.

Hardaway is the son of former NBA all star Tim Hardaway who played in the league from 1989–2003.

Hardaway’s father spent one season with the Dallas Mavericks (2001-02) but is best remembered for his seasons with the Golden State Warriors (1989-96) and Miami Heat (1996-2001).

A 6-foot point guard, his best move was a devastating crossover dribble — a weapon that is not in the arsenal of the younger, taller Hardaway.

“Our games are not comparable,” Hardaway said. “He’s a point guard. I’m not.”

Hardaway was a 5-time NBA All-Star. In 867 NBA games (770 started), he averaged 17.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 35.3 minutes per game.

Time will tell if his son will be in the same league as he was, if he gets through the NBA draft.
