    Best father/son athletic combination of all time (two different sports)

    So, who would you nominate as the best father/son sports duo of all time, based on each playing a different sport.

    For example, my nominations go to these two combos:

    Calvin Hill (football) & Grant Hill (basketball)

    and

    Yannick Noah (tennis) and Joakim Noah (basketball)

    Got any others to add to the mix?
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Not the best by any means but Lonnie Shelton (basketball) and L.J. Shelton (football).

    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    I would go with the Norton family.
