There were four other people in Brad’s family who were instrumental in his development as an athlete, and ultimately, as a young man. His two older brothers, Bruce and Brandon, and his younger brothers, the twins Byron and Bryon.
Brad idolized his two older brothers.
“They push me to where I am today, and I always give them credit because they never let me get complacent with anything, and I respect that,” No. 3 told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Brandon was my favorite basketball player, and Bruce pushed me in the gym for countless hours. It’s great to have two role models who you look up to, and at the same time, they’re your brothers and family. That really hits home.”
According to the Washington Post, Bruce and Brandon spent much of Brad’s youth transforming him into a warrior, while Byron and Bryon were set against him as training partners.
