Being a great athlete takes a lot of practice, but there are other factors that can determine if someone will excel at sports.

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, about 30 to 80 percent of athleticism is inherited from your parents. You can see this in families like the Curry’s, who have three NBA players in the family: Dell Curry, Steph Curry, and Seth Curry.
