But Reese’s impact transcends the court.

With over 3 million followers on Instagram and a coveted invite to the Met Gala, Reese’s influence extends far beyond basketball.

Embracing her celebrity status, Reese acknowledges the trailblazers who paved the way for her success, carrying their legacy with grace and gratitude.

In Chicago, Reese’s arrival has sparked renewed enthusiasm among fans.

Her jerseys flew off the shelves, signaling a newfound hope for the Sky faithful.

At Wintrust Arena, cheers echoed as Reese showcased her prowess, delivering 13 points, five rebounds, and two steals in a dominating victory over the New York Liberty.

Reese spoke to the media regarding the recent rise in popularity of the WNBA, and touched on the legacy left behind by players before her.

“The people that have played before me (and) a lot of the great players already in the league, they deserve this,”Reese said Tuesday night, ahead of the Chicago Sky’s home preseason game.

“Being able to give them the publicity, because you always got to give your flowers to the ones that came before you … they’ve been deserving of this for a really long time.”

For Reese, every basket scored is a tribute to those who came before her, a testament to the enduring legacy of women’s basketball.

Reese and the Chicago Sky will take the cout for their first regular season game next Wednesday, May 15th against the Dallas Wings.
