Tamara aka Tamtam

Day Job: Grad Student

Years with LTP: This is my 1st year

Performance Background: I perform with the 7th Ave Squad for the Knicks. I also perform Off- Broadway in plays and musicals and majored in Drama in school.

Family: My dad Bernie and my puppy Stella

Hometown: Brooklyn

Favorite Player and Why: It's tough to pick, but Cappie Pondexter... who doesn't love our All-Star from Rutgers?

Signature move to get the crowd pumped: I jump around. A LOT. If you're looking for me on court, you'll probably find me by looking for the person jumping up and down and fist pumping. I get excited, what can I say.

Most Memorable Moment with the Team: Watching open practice last spring and seeing how hard the team works to get ready for the season.

Hero: Oprah Winfrey. I love that she inspires so many people and, hello, the woman went to Australia and brought a whole plane of people with her!

Favorite Concessions Item at Pru Center: Crinkle Fries! I have yet to try those little cookie bites but they look goooood.

Fame or Footloose? Footloose! I don't know if I have ever seen all of Fame.

So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars? So You Think You Can Dance... those dancers are AMAZING.

Advice for Aspiring LTPs: It's all about the energy! If you love your team and you love getting the crowd hype you would be a great addition to the team some day! You also have to use a lot of exclamation points. JK.
