Tim Hardaway, Jr. has a long way before he catches his dad’s proficiency on the basketball court. But the former Michigan Wolverine is beginning to see an opportunity.

Because of a few injuries, Hardaway has played more than 29 minutes in the least three games, and has averaged 19 points and 5.7 rebounds during the stretch.

Overall he’s started only six games over two seasons,  averaging 10 points a game in just 22 minutes of action.

At Michigan he was not only a solid performer, he was very dependable. At one point during his career, he played in 81 consecutive games.

Hardaway began his junior and final season by winning the Season Tip Off MVP, the added All-Big Ten first time honors at the end of the season.

Hardaway, who finished his career averaging 14.3 points a game, is the son of Tim Hardaway, Sr., who was a five-time NBA All-Star.
