Asian American or Hapa basketball players who played/are playing in the NBA:
  • 1947 -1948 Wataru Misaka (Mom & Dad are Japanese) - BAA not NBA at that time. For a link to "The Wat Misaka Story", click here.
  • 1978-1982 Raymond Townsend (Mom is Filipino)
  • 1988-1995 Corey Gaines (Mom is Japanese)
  • 1993-2000 Rex Walters (Mom is Japanese) - For a link to read Rex Walters on Jeremy Lin, click here.
  • 2004-2009 Robert Swift (Dad is 1/2 Okinawan)

Also, I believe that Nate Robinson and Greg Oden have 1/8th or 1/16th Filipino as well.
