I have a question for Reddit: If I can't wear number 4, what number should I wear?

Favorite NBA player?

What happens when you go to a park and play pickup games. How's the reaction when you're schooling guys who think they're better than you?

TheWNBA93 karma

I don't do it anymore. But when I used to they didn't like it. They tried to be physical and I would win. Beat a lot of guys back in the day.

My younger sister Ashley is a HUGE fan. What is the best advice you would give to a dedicated 6th grade basketball player? Also, best of luck in the WNBA!
