    The Clarke family of footballers were a bit special, not all top class but not often 5 brothers all play professional sport. Allan, Frank, Kelvin, Derek and Wayne.

    I did before I joined cricketweb. Now I think it's an optional extra.

    I'll nominate:
    Marat Safin and Dinara Safina
    Mark and Mo'onia Gerrard
    Frank and Andy Schleck

    From the names mentioned above I would go for Cheryl and Reggie Miller.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    With Brumbeh re: Giraffin'.

    Cheryl Miller was more known for her coaching and broadcasting than actually playing.

    One of the top 3 womens ball players of all time. The reason she's only known for her sideline reporting is because no one cares about basketball where there's no dunking. That said, Reggie was an overrated player in that he was never a top 10 player in the league at any stage of his career. He lit up the Garden like no other though, what a man. One of my all time favourites, if for nothing else, his trash talking was spectacular.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Cheryl Miller's playing career was basically nothing after her college days.

    I used to follow basketball pretty strongly up until the early 2000's, being a Pacers fan I followed Reggies career religiously. Love the man.


    Besides, there's no way female siblings should be talked about in the same breath as male. Call me sexist, call me whatever, but the fact of the matter is female sport is of a lower standard than male sport so they'll always be behind brother/brother combinations.

    I don't disagree with you in that I don't think they're the most talented sibling pairing in history or anything, I just think that they should be recognised in some form in this thread. Their list of achievements is exemplary and both will be going into the Hall. That's impressive.
