Hey Plenette,

What's your strongest position: long range, mid-range or going to the basket to shoot? I'm your biggest fan!

Questions for Deanna:

Hey Deanna, I am your biggest fan and I was wondering what it is like to play with the Detroit Shock? Thanks!

My jumper beyond the arc and inside the arc is serious but I want to perfect running of the screen from right to left to shoot the jumper. I'm right handed. Can you give me any advice to get better maybe a drill that you do?

By Kara Braxton being one of the largest players in the league, and having the ability to get up and down the court the way she does... I just wanted to know what Kara does to stay mobile and in shpe during the off-season.
