One Mom, Two Pros; Boyette No. 10 Pick In WNBA Draft
Pam McGee and her daughter, Imani Boyette, pose for a picture at last week's WNBA draft.
Basketball hall of famer Pamela McGee made history, again, the other day at the WNBA draft. McGee, one of the pioneers of women's basketball as a star at Southern Cal, WNBA, and the Olympics, became the first person to ever have a child drafted in the NBA and WNBA. Her daughter, Imani Boyette, from the University of Texas, was taken with the No. 10 overall pick by the Chicago Sky. Her brother, JaVale, was a first-round draft pick by the Washington Wizards in 2008.
Of course, neither Imani or JaVale were drafted as high as their mom, who was the No. 2 overall pick in the 1997 WNBA draft.
