Heads up to Daniel Sun and Grit Media for mailing me this YouTube clip of Chiney Ogwumike talking about the WNBA Draft.

Some quotes from the video:

Chiney on turning 23 this year:

Just turned 23 - Jordan year - salute to the G.O.A.T., which is also Kobe too. We can debate that later.


Chiney on the WNBA draft:

For women’s basketball, the turnaround is like super quick. If you play in the Final Four, you could have less than a week for the draft turnaround. You’re going from saying goodbye to your teammates in college to playing with the likes of Candace Parker, Diana Taurasi. Nneka Ogwumike - wink there.

As amazing as draft night is, you know fulfilling your dream, it is equally scary because you don’t know where you’re going to end up, you don’t know where you’re going to move, you don’t know who your new teammates are, you’re like back as a freshman entering college, you’re like the rookie at the bottom of the totem pole.


Chiney on her personality:

So anyone that knows me knows that I love to engage with people, whether its on social media, whether its after the game with a fan. We love to talk, communicate, have fun. That’s the beauty of women’s basketball, we’re very close.
