It just keeps better and better for the No. 1 pick in this year’s WNBA Draft: Kelsey Plum. The shoe giant Nike just announced, that they have signed the superstar to a multiyear endorsement deal. This is on the heels of Nike rejecting the potential No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, Lonzo Ball.

So this is big deal that Nike signed Plum — because the colossal shoe corporation is very selective.

“Nike is the undisputed leader in basketball and it’s a dream come true to become an official member of the family,” said Plum. “The brand’s bold vision for future innovation and commitment to making athletes better made the choice clear.”

Her basketball skills are exceptional, and ironically, she has some football skills as well — better than most quarterbacks in this year’s NFL Draft.
