In between acting and singing, she’s also keeping her eyes on the talent on the floor. So who are some of her favorites. “Breanna Stewart, Maya Moore, Tina Ch’arles; you could go down every team’s roster and find a plethora of players that are doing it up big. ” Kym Hampton told me on Scoop B Radio.
“Talent-wise it is going strong, but everything in the professional age is all about the bottom line.”
Hampton was part of the early years of the WNBA. Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoopes, Rebecca Lobo and Teresa Weatherspoon were the faces of the WNBA and of the league.
So while she watches the new era, does she have a favorite? “I wouldn’t be able to answer that per se” she said diplomatically.
“But it looks like it’s going strong and it looks like they have intentions of continuing it so I’m just going to roll with it and not make any predictions because all predictions have been just that, predictions.”
