If you look across the rosters of Turkish Airlines EuroLeague teams, you will find many players who are the sons of former professionals. But how many players come from a family in which everybody played basketball?
Real Madrid forward Petr Cornelie is one of them; both of his parents, Martial and Pavla, played professionally and so did his sister Jodie.
Young Petr tried other sports but ended up playing basketball partly because of his environment. When everyone in the family is playing the game and you spend most of the time in a gym, it is difficult not to give it a try.
"I've been in the gym my whole life!" he explained. "You can't do better for a young guy who wants to learn how to play basketball."
