Angel Reese's Brutally Honest Admission About Getting 'Cooked' In WNBA

Angel Reese came into the WNBA as an established star from her time with the LSU Tigers at the collegiate level. Many fans thought that Reese could come into the league as a Top 10 pick and immediately make her mark on a WNBA franchise.



While she’s had a quality rookie season, averaging a near double-double behind 11.6 points and 9.6 rebounds, there’s also been some rocky moments at the start of her career.

Reese has been involved in some physical altercations with players like Alyssa Thomas and Jonquel Jones. These veterans may have just been playing physical that day, but it was likely to rattle the rookie.

From her college days and short stint in the league, it’s clear that it’s not possible to get Reese out of her game. Despite that, she recently spoke on her “Welcome to the league moment,” which happened in her very first game against the Minnesota Lynx.



‘I think I’ve had a lot of ‘Welcome to the WNBA’ moments. I’ve guarded usually the best player on the other team every game, so I think my first game was against Minnesota, and I played Napheesa (Collier), and of course, she’s a great player, and I was getting cooked the first game, I’m not going to lie,” said Reese via CBS Sports on X.



Reese was facing a member of the recently reported Team USA roster. She’s already gotten the chance to go head-to-head with superstars like Collier, Breanna Stewart, and Tina Charles.



The Sky may be 4-6 on the season, but Reese has been a bright spot, and moments like this against some of the best women’s basketball players in the world will only make her better.
