Larry Nance Jr. has gone from Revere High to the University of Wyoming and the Los Angeles Lakers and back to Cleveland to play for his Dad’s Cavaliers.
Larry Nance Jr. wears his dad’s number 22 for the Cleveland Cavaliers and plays beneath dad’s jersey, which hangs in honor at Quicken Loans Arena.
Sports run in the family. Sister Casey coaches girls basketball at the siblings’ alma mater, Revere High, and works for the Indians in special events. Kid brother Pete starred at hoops for Revere’s Minutemen before graduating to Northwestern. Larry’s new bride, Hailey, was a swimming champ in her native Wyoming.
The Cavs’ season starts Wednesday in Toronto. The great Lebron James is gone, but the 6-foot-9 Larry has high hopes.
