When Jonas Mariano, son of Jaime, was drafted by Ginebra in 1994, the commentators hailed the coming of the new generation. I believe that was the first time a child of a pro basketball player followed in his father's footsteps. However, what can you say about the proposition "The Second Generation Is Not As Good As Their Dads"?
Just look at this sample roster and compare it to their dads: Jason Webb (Freddie), Joaquin and Ernesto Loyzaga (Carlos), Richard Bachmann (Kurt), Marlon Basco (Mario), Merwin Castelo (Orlando) and the ultimate pathetic excuse for a player Robert Jaworski Jr. Christopher Tan (Norman Black) can also be considered since he is a stepson. Even if he is doing well in his rookie year, let's see if Florendo Ritualo Jr. can last as long as his dad who played for nine years.
The sons have not lived up to the lofty achievements of their dads. What are the reasons?
