NEW YORK (AP) - It didn't take long for one of the coolest streaks in sports to reach 13 years.
Andrew Wiggins was taken by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the No. 1 overall pick Thursday night in the NBA draft, meaning at least one son of a former NBA player has been selected every year since 2002.
Wiggins, whose father Mitchell played six seasons in the NBA, left Kansas after just one season. He is the first son of a former player to be taken No. 1 overall in the draft.
Jabari Parker of Duke, who was taken second by the Milwaukee Bucks, is the son of Sonny Parker, who played six seasons in the NBA.
Mike Dunleavy started the father-son streak in 2002. There were three sons of former players taken last year: Tim Hardaway Jr., Glen Rice Jr., and Erik Murphy.
