Off the court, Bubbles is adjusting to life as an extraordinarily tall teenager. She doesn't have much trouble fitting in...but she does find it difficult to find clothes that fit.

"How do you make people at ease with your height?" Oprah asks.

"Well, if they ask me a question, I always answer with a smile," Bubbles says.

Bubbles' teammates say that after you get to know their star center, you forget about her height and realize she's just like everyone else.

"I want to be an inspiration to others," Bubbles says. "To all the tall people out there: Don't feel like you're alone. Just be happy and love yourself. Then, you'll get love from other people."
