Default Which players grow up in rich families and which grew up in poor ones?

im trying to find the correlation between the two and what ive come up with is that those who grow up in richer families are better players. Why? because they have better nutrition growing up, play in better leagues from a younger age, better genetics and better training/coach/trainers. This is on average btw, and not including white players as we know physically they are disadvantaged most of the time

hate to tell you OP, but Kobe didn't grow up rich. he was middle-class but well cultured due to constantly moving.

Well I guess Steph Curry grew up rich since his dad was an NBA player and made $20 million through out his career.

Joakim Noah too, dude grew up in Paris and NY and his dad was a famous tennis player and his mom was miss universe.

it's pretty easy to tell. just watch interviews and look for players that can barely speak their own language. about 90% of the league.

so did every other superstar that came to the league. Why do u think sons of retired superstar players suck so bad? cuz they don't give a shit about basketball. Their life is already made the day they open their eyes in the hospital. They grow up spoiled and don't want to put the work in to be great at basketball.
