On the Indiana Fever coming back as the reigning WNBA champions and the upcoming season

I think the biggest thing is coming out, everybody getting better in the offseason. Every team will be better. Once we get going in the season every team will be a better team. Everybody needs to come back better. I’m excited. I think we have an opportunity ?? we do have an opportunity to repeat. But there’s going to be a lot of people that are going to be coming after us, coming off the championship run. A lot of people didn’t think we would be in the position we were last year. We’ll come out this year ?? I don’t feel like there is any more pressure on us. I feel like we have to come out and have fun and enjoy the game.

I just got back from China. I played overseas the last three months, came back mid?January. So really right now I’m just taking a break. Once I get back in the gym, not necessarily adding anything more to my game, but just trying to get better with the things that I’m doing, become a better shooter, keep working on my shooting skills, defensively. And then for me most importantly my leadership skills is something I’ll continue to work on over and over every single year. I want to be the best leader for my teammates.
