CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Shane Larkin is looking forward to opening some more doors for himself.
Being the son of Baseball Hall of Fame player Barry Larkin has certain advantages, like the ability as a young kid to pick out anything he wanted from the catalog that Nike would send to its endorsers. It's also safe to assume Shane Larkin got some athleticism from his father, which is part of the reason why the now-former Miami Hurricanes guard is heading to the NBA after just two years of college.
But one of the reasons why he plays basketball - and not baseball, like his dad - is so he can carve his own path.
So when he realized that the NBA was ready for him, he decided he was ready for the NBA.
