Who has been your greatest inspiration and motivator in your success in the field of your career?
I have had a lot of great people around me, from my early coaches in youth basketball, to obviously Coach [Geno] Auriemma at UConn. I have had some great national team coaches and my coaches here in Phoenix. The beauty of having so many great people around you is you take so much of their wisdom and so many of the things that they have learned in basketball over the years. I have had so many. The support of my family has always been key. No matter what I have gone through, they have always been there and they have never changed.
While playing professional sports, athletes often face injuries and other difficulties. Any tips on how to cope and make a comeback after an injury?
Injuries are just a part of sports and a part of life. The one thing I have learned is to make sure you are fully healthy before you return. I have had some incidents with pulled muscles and I have come back a little early. All it does is make you miss a little bit more time if you come back too early, so just make sure you get the proper treatment and get back on the court when you feel 100 percent.
