Erick Dampier’s son is a baller.
A viral video shows the former NBA center’s son, Erick Dampier Jr., dominating his fellow sixth-graders in a youth basketball game last Friday.
Dampier Jr., who is reportedly 6-foot-5, obviously inherited his dad’s height.
The 16-year NBA veteran, who had stints with the Pacers, Warriors, Mavericks, Heat and Hawks, is 6-foot-11. He was selected by Indiana with the 10th overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft.
Dampier Jr. towered over his teammates and opponents in the Feb. 4 game — recording 24 points, 21 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in the first half alone.
The young point guard easily touched the rim on a fast break in the footage, which accumulated over two million views as of Monday.
At one point in the clip, the scoreboard showed that Dampier Jr.’s team was up 30-0 in the first quarter.
According to the Mississippi Play Sports League, via news.com.au, Dampier Jr. usually plays up with eighth graders in spring and summer because it’s more competitive — but his parents allow him to play winter league against kids his own age in order to work on his ball handling and decision making.
