Best Hidden Talent Impersonations. I only recently realized I was so good at them. I was reenacting meeting the rapper T.I. for my friends, and they couldn't believe how closely I imitated his smooth Southern drawl.
Best Quick Workout Calf raises in the shower. I'm just standing there—I might as well be productive! I'll be in the zone singing la la la while knocking out a set of 100. I could honestly work out anywhere, from the shower to the closet.
Best Way to Spend a Saturday Ordering a pizza—because for me a day off is an excuse to eat stuff I shouldn't—and watching reality TV. I hate myself for liking Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Love & Hip Hop, but I just can't tear myself away. Give me some sour gummy worms and I'm in heaven.
Best Advice My mom has always told me, "You don't have to be the best, but you do have to be your best." I always try to push myself outside my comfort zone, on and off the court.
Best Accessory My headbands. I started wearing them during college games to keep my hair out of my face, and they became part of my look on the court. In the WNBA I have to wear my team's colors, but when I'm training I'll bust out the super-dope bright ones, like orange and pink.
Best Shortcut My Crock-Pot. Piling in a bunch of ingredients and coming back hours later to a delicious meal ready to eat? Life changing!
Best Mistake Any ex-boyfriend—pick one!
