All in the Family

Exum poses for a pic with his brother Jamaar, dad Cecil (who played ball with Michael Jordan at the University of North Carolina) and twin sister Tierra. Dante knew from an early age that he wanted to play professionally, but his parents preached the benefits of a college education. Guess who won out in the end?

"They wanted me to go to college, but they always knew it was my decision," Dante says. "Because the ultimate goal is the NBA."
