On the heels of Basketball Wives comes Bringing Up Ballers on Lifetime. The new reality TV show shines a light on five entrepreneurial mothers in Chicago who are grooming their basketball playing children for the NBA. One of the women is salon owner Heather. Her ex-husband Aaron Williams, who played in the NBA for 15 years, is coaching his athletic daughters Danyelle and Cameron, and his 12-year-old son Aaron Jr.

Aaron Williams posted his best numbers as a pro when he was playing with the New Jersey Nets (2000-2001). But the power forward/center also “had the dubious distinction of leading the league in total personal fouls committed” with 319 (an average of 3.89 per game). He retired in 2008. The 45-year-old has since worked as an assistant men’s basketball coach at his alma mater, Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. Bringing Up Ballers airs Wednesdays at 10pm on Lifetime.
