I saw this over at SI, it's fantastic!

An update on the illegitimate kids of athletes
I'm sure many of you probably remember the original post we did right before Father's Day on athletes who have illegitimate kids. Well, due to the recent revelations that Travis Henry has sired an unreal 9 illegitimate kids by 9 women, all by the age of 28, we thought it was time to bring the list back. We also have to add Tracy McGrady to the list, who was recently revealed to be involved in a nasty paternity suit that finally became public. And of course Tom Brady's kid finally popped out, so he can be officially added to the list as well. Let's all welcome Travis, Tracy and Tom to this esteemed list. I can't wait for Elijah Dukes' kid to finally make its grand entrance into this world. We should have a party.

I also want to pass along a story that reader Paul sent us about Shawn Kemp. It's awesome.

In college I was an intern for the Portland Trailblazers (mind you, this was during their Jailblazers heyday while Shawn Kemp was there). I did a bunch of stuff for the PR Department and one day I was filing a bunch of stuff in the office and I came across the Player Questionnaires that they have each new player fill out when they are acquired. It gives them some stupid personal info to include in the media guide and for the announcers and what not. Anyway, on Shawn Kemp’s questionnaire under hobbies it said, “girls”. And my personal favorite – under favorite breakfast he listed, “girls”.

Brilliant work Paul. As usual, we've decided not to include people like LeBron James on the list, who's at least with his girlfriend while having kids.

Since we'd like to make this post the definitive list of athletes who have had illegitimate kids, feel free to let us know if we missed anyone, and we'll update the list again in the future.


Calvin Murphy - 14 illegitimate kids by 9 women. You sir are our current champion.
NEW MEMBER Travis Henry - 9 kids by 9 women. All of this by 28. Impressive. He is on pace to catch Calvin. The fact that he's broke from paying child support may slow him down though.
Ex-San Antonio Spur Willie Anderson - 9 illegitimate kids. If only his field goal percentage had been as high as his impregnation rate.
Evander Holyfield - 9 illegitimate kids. Has more kids than brain cells left.
Shawn Kemp - 7 illegitimate kids by 6 women. Gives his nickname of the Reign Man new meaning.
Derrick Thomas - 7 illegitimate kids by 5 women. He died at 33. Let's just leave it at that.

Larry Johnson (basketball) - 5 kids by 4 women. 3 are illegitimate.
Charles Rogers - Uber-NFL Draft bust reportedly has 5 illegitimate kids...and no paycheck. Definitely the makings of a solid family.
Santonio Holmes - 3 illegitimate kids by two women, before leaving college.
Former Celtic Greg Minor - 3 illegitimate kids.
Ricky Williams - 3 illegitimate kids. Maybe that's why he smokes so much weed.
Priest Holmes - 3 illegitimate kids. You best keep running Priest.

Willis McGahee - 3 illegitimate kids in 2 years in Buffalo. Not a lot to do in Buffalo, except make babies. Lots and lots of babies.

Walter Herrmann
Peja Stojakovic
Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan
NHL player Daniel Alfredsson
NHL player Richard Zednik
Mike Miller
NEW MEMBER - Tracy McGrady

Steve Garvey - 2 illegitimate kids by 2 women.
Dr. J - 2 illegitimate kids by 2 women.
Larry Bird
Isiah Thomas
Jim Palmer
Darryl Strawberry
Pete Rose
Tug McGraw

Gary Sheffield - Had 2 illegitimate kids by age 17. Added a few more later on in life.

Elijah Dukes - recently impregnated a 17-year-old foster child. Also has 4 more illegitimate kids - making him a middleweight as well.

Matt Leinart - already has one, my guess is he's working hard on another.
NOW OFFICIAL Tom Brady - the dream baby is here.

Noel Devine - He's not an official member yet because he's not a pro. He's an incoming freshman at WV. But he had 2 illegitimate kids in high school, and possibly more. Keep it Noel, a good start, but you've got a long way to go.

Antawn Jamison
Chipper Jones
DeShawn Stevenson
Cliff Floyd
Mark Messier
Brian Urlacher
Rae Carruth - Yes, he fathered an illegitimate kid before the incident where he had his pregnant girlfriend gunned down.
Oscar De La Hoya
Juan Gonzalez
Andre Rison
David Justice
Alonzo Spellman
Dave Meggett
Gary Payton - From a reader: The best part about Gary Payton is that his illegitimate kid is named "Gary Payton, Jr." so that when his wife (or whatever) had a kid, and he wanted a junior, he couldn't do it without major confusion, so he named his legitimate kid "Gary Payton II."
Stephon Marbury
Jason Kidd
Allen Iverson
Latrell Sprewell
Juwan Howard
Kenny Anderson
Scottie Pippen
Hakeem Olajuwon
Patrick Ewing
Randy Johnson

So in other words, the moral of the story is wrap it up tight. Unless you're a professional athlete. Then just do whatever the hell you want.

Damn. Good read, I should say interesting read that is.

Very interesting. There were definitely a few surprises on the list and some people that seriously have some issues in their life.

Hakeem was eventually married to the women he had kids by.

I think he is with the woman who "calfed."

"Calfed"? His one son is named Mavrick -- isn't that more like "colted"?

Apparently at the combine, Darren McFadden disclosed to an NFL team that he is involved in a paternity suit.

Oh, and he also informed that team that he's got another two kids on the way as well.

Does this "help" or "hurt" his draft status? LOL

Nothing says "Getting started on the right foot" better than three children with three different women by the time you are 22!
McFadden will end up on Skid Row unless he can forge a 20 year career. Don't these guys understand that they are a meal ticket to some of these skanks, and nothing more? Geez, get knocked up, get 20 Grand in child support for the next 18 years!

02-26-2008, 12:29 PM
If you read the first post in this thread you'll see that Gary Sheffield had two by the age of 17.

McFadden is a poseur.
