Son Brandon Stoudamire Is A Basketball Player Too
The 49-year-old former NBA star’s two kids, Brandon and Damon Jr, are both basketball players. This is an excellent example of him passing the torch to his children.
Stoudamire was still a highlight of the NBA when his two children began understanding the world. Thus both of them were fortunate enough to witness their father’s play.
Although both are still young, Brandon was born in 2002, aged 20, and they have the privilege of being sons of coach Damon Stoudamire. However, they are trying their best to make a name for themselves in the world of basketball.
Brandon plays high school basketball for South Forsythe in the G position. Besides, despite having a private account, he has over 30K followers on Instagram. Additionally, he has amassed more than 10k Twitter followers on @kingstoudamire.
Additionally, Damon Jr. participates in basketball at Delta College, much as his father did. But sadly, not much intel on him has surfaced on the internet.

Sadly, his father abandoned the family when Damon was still a little child. Because of this, Liz had to raise the little child alone, along with his grandmother Wanda Stoudamire. In addition, Cam Stoudamire, his brother, was a part of his upbringing. Cam plays in the Safety position for the Oregon State Beavers.
The other stepsisters Stoudamire has are three. Damon, however, has made the decision to remain mum about who they are. Damon attended the University of Arizona to complete his collegiate studies. Stoudamire was a standout on his college team there, setting several records. He was awarded Pac-10 Player of the Year in 1995 as a result.
Because he grew up without his father’s love, Damon does not hold back at any cost to be there for his children and his wife, Natasha. He has two children, both sons, and no daughter. Brandon and Damon Stoudamire Jr. play junior basketball at their respective high schools.
