The daughter of Investment Banker and Bucks co-owner Wesley Edens, Mallory Edens became an overnight celebrity once audiences were introduced to her at the 2014 Draft lottery. Mallory at the time was a high-school Senior in New York that had 250 followers on Twitter prior to her appearance. Fast forward to the next day and Mallory’s follower total had skyrocketed to 33,000! She might not be Katherine Webb, but she sparked up plenty of interest in her own right.
Jasmyn Wilkins is the niece of former Atlanta Hawks Hall of Fame swingman Dominique Wilkins, the daughter of former New York Knick Gerald Wilkins. Jasmyn’s younger sister also attended college on a basketball scholarship. The Wilkins clan certainly has a knack for basketball, and Jasmyn was no slouch in her own right when it came to athletics. However, she’s followed a different path and has embarked on a career in nursing as she is a student at Georgia State University. She also claimed forth runner up in the 2012 Miss Universe pageant. Not too shabby, Jasmyn, not too shabby!
We can all thank former Knicks and Hawks coach and current Clippers assistant coach Mike Woodson for giving us Mariah, who is the youngest of Woodson’s two daughters. Mariah has her own brand, Kiwi Plum, which “encourages women to embrace who they are. Be who you want to be, unapologetically” as stated in the page’s Instagram bio. The brand’s identity doesn’t seem to be fully carved out as of yet, but it looks like swimwear is where the brand will divert the majority of its focus, if not all of its focus.
Laura is carrying on the Stockton family basketball legacy as she plays for her father’s alma mater Gonzaga. The 5’8” guard made her father proud as she was second on the team in the assist department. Laura may have the necessary tools to make it to the big leagues, the WNBA, as after her Senior campaign in High School she was named the Seattle Times State Player of the Year. Filling the shoes of her father is no easy task, but Laura seems to have an impressive skill set in her own right.
Paige, the daughter of current Bulls head coach and former player Fred Hoiberg, is a student at Kansas University where she works in the Kansas Jayhawks basketball office.
