Fans Loved Angel Reese’s Powerful Line About Wanting to Hit ‘Hit Rock Bottom’ as a WNBA Rookie

In this story: Former LSU star Angel Reese didn’t have to wait long to hear her name get called at Monday night’s WNBA draft, as the Chicago Sky selected her with the No. 7 pick.

Reese celebrated the moment with a big hug from LSU coach Kim Mulkey, and then later during her press conference she got deep when talking about why she decided to forgo her final year of eligibility at LSU and make the jump to the WNBA.

“I wanted more for myself,” Reese said. “I wanted to start over. I feel like I had been at a high since the national championship and I want to hit rock bottom. I want to be a rookie again. I want to be knocked down by vets and I want to be able to get up and grow and be a sponge. I’m just super excited to play with amazing players and against amazing players. This league is really competitive and I’m a competitive player so I want to play against the best players.”
