Van Vleet Credits His Newborn Son For Playoff Performance
Rockford native Fred Van Vleet broke his postseason slump with a 13 point, 6 assist performance against the Bucks Tuesday night in a 120-102 Raptors win to even the Eastern Conference Finals a 2-2.
That's right Fred and his longtime high school girlfriend Shontai Neal gave birth to a baby boy, Fred Jr., the night before.
I don't have kids so I'm not sure about all the feelings that go into it but I'm assuming that tending to your very pregnant partner while trying to focus on the Milwaukee Bucks can be a tall task.
Congrats to Fred and Shontai. Will they plan on having another kid for next year's playoffs? We'll have to wait and see.
