Ben Wallace was the 10th of 11 children. With that many kids, there were no trips to the mall when the kids needed new clothes. There simply wasn’t enough money for that. His mother saved money by making all the kids’ clothing.
When the kids wanted something, they were forced to work for it. Little Ben wanted to go to a basketball camp, but it cost $50 to attend. SO resourceful Ben started cutting people’s hair for $3 a cut so he could save up to attend the camp.
