National Siblings Day: How many siblings are in the NBA?

April 10th marks National Siblings Day in the United States and Canada and what better way to celebrate the holiday by going through the NBA's literal brotherhood.

This season, rookies LaMelo Ball and Jaden McDaniels added to a seemingly ever-growing list that includes a few trios as well as a few sets of twins.

Here's a look at all of the siblings that are currently in the league…

Giannis, Kostas and Thanasis Antetokounmpo

The Antetokounpo family is represented well, with three brothers on two teams.

Thanasis, the oldest of the bunch, joined his younger brother Giannis with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2019. Giannis, of course, is the league's back-to-back reigning MVP and reigning Defensive Player of the Year while Kostas, a two-way player with the Los Angeles Lakers, became the first in the family to win an NBA title.

LaMelo and Lonzo Ball

The Ball brothers have the distinction of being the only two brothers in league history to both be selected in the top five of the NBA Draft.

Lonzo, the elder Ball, was selected with the No. 2 overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers while LaMelo was selected with the No. 2 overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Hornets. LiAngelo, the middle Ball brother, signed a training camp deal with the Detroit Pistons in 2020 and has signed with the NBA G League for the upcoming season.

Seth and Stephen Curry

Two second-generation hoopers.

The sons of 1994 Sixth Man of the Year Dell Curry, Seth and Stephen are two of the best shooters in the NBA. Steph, who is two years older than Seth, is a two-time league MVP and three-time NBA champion. Seth, who went undrafted in 2014, shoots a shade under 45.0% from deep for his career.

Juancho and Willy Hernangomez

International flair.

Willy, who is now with the New Orleans Pelicans, is 16 months older than Juancho, who is with the Minnesota Timberwolves. They're yet another duo of Spanish brothers in the NBA, following the blueprint of NBA Champions Marc and Pau Gasol.

Aaron, Jrue and Justin Holiday

Another trio.

While Aaron - the youngest - and Justin - the oldest - are teammates with the Indiana Pacers for the second season, Jrue has joined them in the Central Division as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. They became the first trio of brothers to take the floor together in a 2019 meeting between the Pelicans and Pacers. A Holiday party, in a sense.

Brook and Robin Lopez

While Brook was selected with the No. 10 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, his twin brother, Robin, was taken five picks later.

The twins are easily told apart by their hair as well as the differences in their style of play. For one season, the two were teammates with the Milwaukee Bucks, though Robin has since moved on to join the Washington Wizards.

Caleb and Cody Martin

The Martin twins, natives of North Carolina, are teammates with the Charlotte Hornets. Unlike the Lopez twins, the Martins are a bit harder to tell apart, save for their playing style.

While Caleb went undrafted, Cody was taken with the No. 36 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. The Martin twins are one of three sets of brothers that are also currently teammates.

Jalen and Jaden McDaniels

Separated by two years and some change, the McDaniels brothers have each shown plenty of potential in their respective situations.

Jalen, the elder of the two, is carving a role with the Hornets after being selected with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Jaden, who spent one season at the University of Washington, was selected with the No. 28 overall pick in 2020 by the Los Angeles Lakers but landed with the Timberwolves after a few draft day moves.

Adding to the familial ties, the McDaniels are cousins of former top-five pick and current coach at the University of Michigan, Juwan Howard.

Marcus and Markieff Morris

The Morris twins are unique in that they don't play on the same team but they live in the same city.

Again, it might be hard to tell them apart by looks but the two have pretty different games. Marcus, who averaged 16.7 points per game in 2019-20 is entering his first full season with the LA Clippers while Markieff, who averaged 9.7 points last season, is entering his first full year with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Markieff became the first of the two to win a title in 2020 but Marcus will look to match his brother in the rings department with the Clippers this year.
