The Raiders wide receiver, Davante Adams, is not the only athlete in his family. His twin sisters, Destiny and D’aishanae, played basketball during high school. The twins are time and again seen at their brothers’ games. 

The former Packers player, Adams, didn’t have the best of childhood. Growing up in a crime-ridden area, he even had to save his sisters from the line of fire.

In 2022, when he joined Las Vegas Raiders, he linked up with his college teammate Derek Carr and became the highest-paid wide receiver at the time of signing. 

In a recent interview with The Ringer, Davante talked about how he destroyed the narrative of Aaron Rodgers being the reason for his success. The wide receiver respects the future Hall of Famer but stated he deserves his praises.

Speaking to the NFL, Adams said when he was 14, his sisters were trapped in the middle of a shooting that took place in their neighborhood.

Seeing the scene unfold from his window, Davante made a quick dash to grab his sisters and bring them safely into their house. 

His two sisters, Destiny and D’aishanae, are available on Instagram with the username @destinylayla_ and @daishanaaeee.

Earlier this year, in January, the girls attended their brothers’ match at Allegiant Stadium, with D’aishanae captioning the post, “Saturdays are for football too.”

Davante Adams’ Parents, Doug Adams, And Pamela Brown 

Davante Adams’ parents, Doug Adams and Pamela Brown, went their separate ways when Davante was two. 

The couple might have separated, but they continued to have an amicable relationship raising their son together. When he was five, the wide receiver started shuffling from one parent’s house to another. 

But all in all, the footballer shared a tight-knit relationship with his mom, Pamela. His mom worked tirelessly to provide for the family.

Brown worked two jobs; one of them was braiding hair at night. The other job was at a software company, Synopsys, as a site manager. 

When Davante would request his mom to help her financially, Pamela would refuse and say he had to keep his focus on academics or sports.

In 2014, right after being drafted by the Packers in the second round, Adams gifted his mom a BMW as a birthday gift. After years of struggle, the mother-son duo finally started reaping the rewards of their hard work.

His father, Doug Adams, is available on Instagram and often shares videos and pictures of him attending his son’s games.
