Brent Barry and his brothers Scooter Barry, Jon Barry and Drew Barry are examples of how talent can be hereditary. The four sons of basketball legend and Hall of Famer Rick Barry all had standout collegiate and steady professional careers. Of the four, Brent may be the most talented. Brent Barry played his high school basketball at De La Salle Catholic in Concord, California. He then attended Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. After red-shirting the 1990-1991 season, he showed steady improvement during each of the next four seasons, culminating in 1994-1995 when he averaged 21.0 points per game, 5.9 rebounds per game, 3.9 assists per game, and 2.7 steals per game, while shooting 51.4% from the field and 82.3% from the free throw line. He ended his career with 1,304 points (12.1 per game), 396 rebounds (3.7 per game), 351 assists (3.3 per game) and 199 steals (1.8 per game). Brent was drafted in the first round of the 1995 NBA draft with the #15 overall pick by the Denver Nuggets. His rights were traded to the Los Angeles Clippers. In his eight seasons to date, he has amassed totals of 5,757 points, 1979 assists, 1918 rebounds, 695 steals and 172 blocked shots while playing for the Clippers, the Miami Heat, the Chicago Bulls and the Seattle Supersonics. He has also shown his athleticism by winning the 1996 Slam Dunk Competition during All-Star Weekend in his rookie season, where he also participated in the All-Star Rookie Game, scoring eight points to go along with four assists and five steals.
