It’s going to always be there. That’s something that you can’t change,” she told The Athletic during the first round of the NBA 2K League playoffs last week. “I can’t quit or give up just because a few people who obviously have problems with themselves, they’re bothering me.

I will say one thing that keeps me moving and keeps me going is the positivity and the support outweighs the negative.”
