About My Teammates

Wauters on Becky Hammon, New York Liberty
"She loves Mountain Dew. She needs her caffeine before the game. I love her car. She has a Cadillac Escalade. She let me drive it when she had to stay in town one night because we live just north of Manhattan. She asked if I could drive her car, I was like 'okay.' She is a good dancer. Shameka Christon is a good dancer, and Becky is trying to learn her moves. Sometimes when we are lifting in the weightroom, we put some music on and they dance. Shameka teaches Becky some moves. She's getting there.
Bird on Lauren Jackson,
"Before games she listens to Marilyn Manson and that hard stuff, but one of her favorite songs in Laffy Taffy. She always has her ipod and is a Sidekick fiend like all of us. She's a really good cook. She makes pot roast and good potatoes and stuff like that.
Nolan on Swin Cash, Detroit
"Number one, no one likes to room with Swin on the road. Number two, the reason being is because she likes the room hot. Number three, Swin can't live without her Sidekick or cell phone. Number four, Swin owns maybe 50 pairs of jeans. Number five, Swin is on her own time. That's Swin."

Catchings on Tamika Whitmore
"She definitely brought a different dimension with her toughness, and her hate to lose, just all out gutsy attitude. As a person, she's just real, she's one of those players that you love to play with because she is going to tell you how it is, whether it's basketball or off the court, it doesn't matter."
Christensen on Penny Taylor
Five Things About : "She is foreign, she's extremely sweet and very quiet, and she got married in the offseason and her husband is here now, so it's really cute to see them together."
Katie Douglas on
Nykesha Sales, Connecticut
"She loves to come over and steal my DVDs, she is a couch potato, loves chilling out and doing nothing. She loves to interior decorate her house, she's making many home improvements to it. She takes about a year to get to know her, but she's a great person once you get to know her, and she's in desperate need of being a mom. She's great with kids."
Dupree on her favorite teammates, Chicago Sky
Griffith on Ticha Penicheiro,
Five Things About : "Fashion queen, best passer in the WNBA, probably the goofiest person you'd ever hang around with, a person you can always count on, always in your corner, and a loving, caring person."
Penicheiro on Yolanda Griffith, Sacramento Monarchs
"Competitive, a warrior, funny, fighter, and a loveable person. Sometimes she has that intense look on her face, but deep inside she's a good person, and she has a lot of love for everybody. She's a great teammate and I'm very fortunate to be able to play with her."
Jones on Lindsay Whalen,
"Off the top of my head, on the court she looks serious, but she might be the most silly person on our team. She has humor you don't really expect because she says things in a flat tone and you're like 'oh my god she just said that?' She's hilarious.

on her favorite teammates, Houston Comets
"I would probably say Kim Perrot, as well as Tammy Jackson. I've had a lot of great teammates, but just standing out as far as their personalities that made them stand out, they were wonderful people. As far as one of my newer teammates, I would say the rookie, Mistie Williams. She has an unbelieveable attitude, she is a great teammate all around, not just to me but in general. It's not often you find someone that works hard all the time, and is happy all the time. I can say that I work hard all the time, but happy all the time, absolutely not, haha. But she has one of those bubbly personalities where it's almost like she doesn't have a care in a world, and when you walk into a locker room and you're not necessarily having a good day, she can make you brighten up and change your day."
Lindsay Whalen on Margo
Dydek, Connecticut Sun
"She speaks five languages, shes makes really good crepes, she's taller than me, she can dunk and she's a really really cool person."
on her favorite teammates, San Antonio Silver Stars
"Right now I like hanging out with Vicke Johnson, because she's been in the league so long, she knows what she's doing and what she's talking about so I can learn a lot from her."
