This is one timeout Damien Wilkins of the Indiana Pacers will never forget.
His fiancee, Jasmine Mitchell, used the moment during the Pacers’ 98-94 loss to the Dallas Mavericks to reveal — on the gigantic scoreboard screen in Bankers Life Fieldhouse — the gender of the baby she and Wilkins are expecting. With an assist from mascot Boomer the Panther, she announced, “It’s a boy,” and Wilkins’ reaction was pretty sweet.

“I know he’s excited as well,” Mitchell said (via the Indy Star). “Probably another basketball player.”
Ya think? Wilkins, 37, is the son of former NBA player Gerald Wilkins and the nephew of Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins, so odds are she’s right. Her fiance, though, has designs on another prominent basketball family now that he knows he’s having a third son.
3rd boy!! Bout to get my “Lavar Ball”, on!
