WNBA legend Tamika Catchings is making her return to Indiana as a director for player development. The star who played for the Indiana Fever for 16 years will be in charge of all three basketball teams in the Indiana area, which includes the Fever, Indiana Pacers, and their D-League affiliate the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. If you look up the word legend, Catchings would be right beside it, and even then that phrase would be considered as an understatement for her. In her 16 year career, she won an WNBA title and finals MVP both in 2012, she was a 5-time WNBA Defensive Player of the year, a 10-time NBA All-Star and Rookie of the year.
Tamika Catchings Rumors
The WNBA has 12 teams, six are owned by NBA franchises, including Indiana. Could their lockout affect the woman’s league? Tamika Catchings: I don’t think it really is a concern. We’re keeping the WNBA and NBA separate. It’s definitely one of those things that everybody hopes they can get settled. But as far as the WNBA and NBA, we have to focus on what we’re doing and put out a great product that people will continue to come and support.
