Black Girl Magic just took another step forward as long-time Los Angeles Sparks star (& new member of the Chicago Sky!) Candace Parker makes history this fall as the first WNBA player to be featured on the cover of the NBA 2K game. The cover is a special edition celebrating the 25thanniversary season of the WNBA and will debut in September.
& Parker is not just the face of the game… she’s been working with developers since they first added WNBA players to the game 3 years ago. She’s helping them design the game with a better understanding of the way the game is played in the WNBA, including nuances of the differences between eras and how offenses are run differently than in men's basketball.
Candace is a two-time league MVP, six-time All-Star, WNBA champion, and two-time Olympic gold medalist with several big endorsements and this is an example of more progress being made for women in sports getting parity with male sports stars in pay and visibility.
Remember to always celebrate your magic! xo
