Father / Son NBA duos

Watching Step Curry play and his father Dell, I was wondering how uncommon it is to have a father and son both reach the NBA. I'm having a hard time remembering many other duos. Only ones I can think of is the Berry family. (Rick, Jon and Brent) Who am I missing and which duo you think would've won a two on two game in both players prime. ( I think the Wilkins family is another one)
