"It's great for my family members. They always
get a kick out of seeing me on TV. They'll call me and say 'I
just saw you on television! It was only for two seconds, but I

honor to be recognized by the league and to be around my peers like
this. It's a great opportunity. You get to catch up with each other
and share what we're all been up to. And it's nice to see familiar
faces more than just the couple of times a season when you play
each other and in a more laid back and relaxed setting."

this is a pretty nice thing to be a part of. This was probably
my second or third time being in a league commercial, so it is
always a neat experience for me. It is a lot of fun because you
get to see people who are normally your opponent and you're thinking
'Kill, Kill, Kill,' but in this setting, everyone is cool and
they bring in a group of people like this to do something for the
league to get faces out there, it is very important. For me to be
one of the faces of the league is very special. It's funny because
people look at us and we are so competitive out there on the court,
but we all don't know each other that well yet. Everyone knows each
other a little bit and this makes it even better."
seeing yourself in the commercial because I'm usually sitting with
someone who will make fun of me. 'Oooh, there's 'Kesh again.' I
had a couple of commercials that played all the time, and when they
came on, my friends would roll their eyes and laugh at me. But it's
definitely cool, especially when it's on prime time or during a
big game or on ESPN when everyone is watching."
"I think this
is a great opportunity for me. Just coming off of a championship
makes it even sweeter. It's just really nice to be a part of something
so special. I'm excited to be here with a great group of girls.
And it's been a lot of fun, too. It's going to be awesome to see
myself in the commercial."
flattering. It is a lot of fun to meet the other players. That is
the best part for me, just getting to know them on a different level.
I am still somewhat new to the league, I have watched a lot of them
be successful, so it's neat to be able to deepen the relationships
we have. These are players we are competing against, so it's always
fun just to interact with them and see them in a new light."
"I think it
is a great honor to be asked to come to New York and hang out with
these girls and do this kind of stuff. I feel privileged that I
am able to do it and really think this is a lot of fun. I am going
to see myself in the commercial and think to myself, 'I really look
like that?' "
