Angel Reese Syndication: The Indianapolis Star

Angel Reese has had quite a dominant start to her WNBA career as she ha set a new record for the most consecutive double-doubles in league history. This week, she was honored for her dominance by making the WNBA All-Star Game, and she was clearly quite proud of her accomplishment.

Following news that she had made the All-Star Team, Angel Reese did not hold back her emotions as she opened up about what the honor meant to her.

“I’m just so happy. I know the work I put in,” Reese said according to ESPN. “Coming into this league, so many people doubted me and didn’t think my game would translate and I wouldn’t be the player that I was in college or better or would be worse and wouldn’t be where I am right now.

“But I trusted the process and I believed and I’m thankful that I dropped to [pick No. 7] and was able to come to Chicago. And like, it’s just a blessing. I can’t thank my teammates and my coaches enough for just believing in me and trusting me. I know all of them are going to come to Phoenix and support me. So I’m really happy right now.”

Reese will join longtime rival Caitlin Clark on Team WNBA as they take on Team USA – the United States Women’s National Team – later this month.
