Even though he grew up in tiny Morley, Mo., population 696, Georgetown small forward Otto Porter Jr. never had trouble finding anybody to play basketball.

All he had to do was look around the house.

There was his father, Otto Porter Sr., his mother, Elnora Timmons Porter, and even his little brother Jeffrey. His parents were stars at Scott County Central High School and his brother is headed in that direction. The school has won a state-record 16 state titles, and there was a member of the Porter family on the first 11 of them.

Here in Ohio, not even the Morans or the Greynolds can touch that.

When Porter Jr. is selected in the NBA Draft on June 27 -- perhaps even by the Cavaliers -- he knows he has his family to thank. Because he was surrounded by good players who shared his name, he felt no need to go the AAU route to hone his game.

"I figured I could just stay home and work on my game and the exposure would come later when teams could see I can play and I had talent," Porter said during the recent NBA combine in Chicago.

He did joke that his family would have made one heck of an AAU team.

"We had all positions, point guards to centers," he said with a smile.

Porter, nicknamed "Bubba" by his family, has basketball in his DNA. His father, whose No. 35 jersey has been retired, played on the first state championship team. His mother was named all-state in 1985. She put a basketball in Otto Jr.'s hands before he could walk. Her brother, Marcus Timmons, was named Missouri's Mr. Basketball in 1991 and set the school's all-time scoring record. Porter's other uncles, Melvin Porter and Jerry Porter, also won state titles. His cousin, Mark Mosely, was the starting point guard for the Braves in 1990 and 1991 when they won state championships. His cousin, Corey Porter, helped Sikeston High School win its first state title in its first undefeated season. His cousin and former teammate Bobby Hatchett played for Midland College, which played for the National Junior College Athletic Association national championship. Another cousin, Calvin Porter Jr., was one of three Porters (including Otto Jr.) to start for the high school's championship team in 2011. That year marked Otto Porter Jr.'s third straight title.
