On teammate Candace Parker:
TT: We’re actually very close. We’ve spent quite a bit of time together, in the off-season. We have a relationship outside of basketball. And it’s so funny, her being so close to me, I think that she’s probably the only person that didn’t kind of push me to come to a team. Because our friendship is much more than just the basketball side of it. I did get an occasional, “You could just come to LA,” but it was never a push, and I think that shows the genuine side of the friendship. I appreciated it.
I’m really glad TT will be there to mentor CP.
