Quirky. Relentless. Energetic. As confident as a hostage negotiator. That is McCoughtry.
The reasons I like her, in a nutshell. Lack of arrogance would be another:
SLAM: What is your main role on this team?
AM: My role on this team, so far, is to come in off the bench and bring energy and an extra spark.
SLAM: How did you handle coming off the bench for the first time in your career?
AM: I don’t mind coming off the bench. It doesn’t bother me. My mentality is whatever I do I’m going to be a beast at it, whether I start or come off the bench.
SLAM: How is it playing with veterans like Chamique Holdsclaw?
AM: The vets are great and they are like my mentors. I look up to all of them.
I wonder what Jeff Walz thinks?
