Landry Shamet met his Father after 10 years
During an Interview, Shamet spoke about connecting with his father for the first time the previous year. The Basketball legend mentioned that he had stepped into a big brother role with three younger siblings whom he had never met before. His mother, Melanie, had told him about his father when he was a teenager.
After nearly a decade, he reached out to his father, who had been playing overseas for 15 years. Shamet stated that being the only child of a single guardian his whole life had been a life changer and that he had underestimated the internal changes that would come with it. He also mentioned that his mind was not always on basketball during the games last year but now he feels like he is in a spot where it can be because he spent the whole summer with his family.
