Many netizens have questioned whether Jamal Murray has a sister. The professional basketball player is not known to have a sister but has a brother.

He committed to the University of Kentucky and played for the Wildcats men’s basketball team.

The point guard started his NBA journey with the Denver Nuggets in 2016, and he has been serving for the same franchise since then.

In his rookie season, Jamal was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.

Besides, he has also represented the national team and agreed to a three-year commitment to play for the senior team on May 24, 2022.

Jamal Murray Sister

The Nuggets’ point guard does not have a sister. In 2017, he shared a post on his Twitter with a bunch of kids.

In the post, there were two boys and one girl. This might have created confusion about him having a sister.

But, it was just him making the day of his young fans. Jamal has never publicly talked about him having a sister. So, it is safe to say that the Jamal family does not have a daughter.

Jamal Murray Brother

Jamal has a younger brother named Lamar Murray, who appears to be 5-10 years younger than the NBA player.

The two Murray brothers are very close to each other. Jamal used to join his brother at different events.

Jamal Murray Family

Jamal was born to Sylvia and Roger Murray. His mother is from Syria, and his father was born in Jamaica and later moved to Canada at 9.

Roger grew up running track and field, and he specialized in the 100-meter dash. He idolized Michael Jordan and loved to watch tape-delayed broadcasts on television NBA games.

There are not much details about Sylvia. However, she was the one Jamal looked up to off the court.

She is a very supportive mother and used to help the professional basketball player with his schoolwork.

When the father-son duo was traveling, Sylvia used to look after Lamar, Jamal’s younger brother.

Father-Son Relationship

As a child, Jamal used to follow his father to gyms and watched his old man put in effort across the court.

Roger used to train Jamal and practice free throws and jump shots. Jamal’s father was like a coach, trainer, and friend.

Roger wanted his son to have the mental strength of Bruce Lee. Growing up, Roger was fascinated by Lee, the martial artist, actor, and philosopher.

He prepared his son with more intensity than most other NBA players. Jamal’s mental game is at another level.

All the hard work paid off, as he was drafted as the 7th overall pick in the 2016 draft. The father-son duo hugged it out after the official announcement.
