A New York Minute With ... Taj McWilliams-Franklin

It's just a matter of days until newly acquired center Taj McWilliams-Franklin will join the Liberty in Training Camp after capturing the Czech Republic League Championship title.

We know the impressive resume the 11-season veteran will bring with her to the Big Apple - the WNBA Championship experience and six All-Star appearances, but how much do you know her off-the-court?

In prep for McWilliams-Franklin arrival, spend a New York minute with the newest member of the Liberty family.

When I think of New York, I think ... of bright lights and the big city. I think of big buildings and even bigger hearts. I think of MSG!!!!
Mornings are ... a time for personal meditation and prayer. It is my time to myself for a brief moment before the world starts revolving again.
My favorite time of year is ... whenever I get to spend it with my family!!
There's no way I would ever ... eat pork or own a pet!!!
My family ... means everything to me. They are the reason I can wake up and still move and play. They are the reason God made me.
Travel is ... one of the things I do not think I could live without. I love to travel: new cultures, new places, new foods.
You'll never find me without ... a purse.
The thing I love most about Texas is ... it's a little bit of country, a little bit of city.
Without the WNBA, I ... would not have the opportunities to provide for my family the way that I am able to now. I would not be able to have my family and close friends see me playing in person. I would not have the life that I have now.
I chose the No. 7 because ... it is a biblical reference. Seven means completion. On the seventh day God rested! Seven indicates the senses of a change after an accomplished cycle and of a positive renewal. And it is the seven petitions in the Lord's prayer.
My favorite snack is ... Twizzlers!!! They make your mouth happy! And totally fat free-ish. To be politically correct, popcorn with no sugar or butter, great snack, healthy too for the most part.
My most memorable moment as a professional basketball player ... with a life full of awesome memories, who can chose one? The day basketball chose me! Every day I get to play as a professional player is a memorable moment for me!!!
