WNBA star Tamika Catchings gives back along with Allstate's WBCA Good Works team

Gilbert Arenas Is Not Apologizing to the WNBA


The basketball world has been long familiar with Tamika Catchings' leadership qualities on the WNBA hardwood. But what's even more important is her impact off the court, helping youths attain their dreams by empowering them in class and athletically.

Catchings is an ambassador for Allstate's WBCA Good Works team, which honors college basketball players who give back to their communities while also excelling on the hardwood.

Catchings, entering her final season as a pro basketball player with the Indiana Fever, is a 10-time WNBA All-Star, former Rookie of the Year, five-time Defensive Player of the Year and WNBA champion.

Similarly to her good friend Kobe Bryant, Catchings' days as a pro are nearing an end. This coming season will be her last in the WNBA. And while she admittedly has no interest in coaching, she told AOL Sports that one of her post-career goals is to become a general manager and piece together her own team.

We're definitely excited to see what the future holds for one of basketball's brightest personalities.
