Fred VanVleet Jr. makes his debut on social media


NBA champion and Rockford native, Fred VanVleet’s baby boy Fred VanVleet Jr. made his debut on social media when mom, Shontai Neal shared photos of him on Saturday. VanVleet Jr. was credited with giving VanVleet Sr. the boost he needed to help his team beat the Bucks in game four of the Eastern Conference Finals. After that, he went off. VanVleet shot 53% from 3-point range over the course of Toronto’s last nine playoff games, eventually helping the Raptors reach their first ever NBA championship title. He also set an NBA record for most three’s made off the bench in an NBA finals game, making 5-of-11 3-pointers. Putting on performances like the ones VanVleet has can’t be a coincidence immediately after his son’s birth… or can it?
