Teamwork is a constant for these brothers, from NBA to Van Arsdale Arts

More from this show

Dick Van Arsdale is best known to Arizonans as the Original Sun of the Phoenix Suns. He was traded to the team 50 years ago and became the first member of the expansion team. In 2005, he suffered a stroke and had to relearn how to do nearly everything.

He always loved to draw so he and his twin brother, Tom, also a Phoenix Suns player and a painter, opened a studio in Scottsdale. We catch up with the brothers to talk about their artwork, how their close relationship works for them and how art has impacted their lives.
