Angel Reese’s 3-Word Response to Online Interview Fail After Sky vs. Storm

Angel Reese’s 3-Word Response to Online Interview Fail After Sky vs. Storm

Following Chicago Sky’s 84-71 away loss to Seattle Storm on Sunday, Angel Reese, Marina Mabrey and Teresa Weatherspoon attended a routine post-game press conference. However, things got interesting when an online interview with a reporter apparently had some sort of glitch.

The reporter apparently forgot to turn off his microphone, which then picked up a strange conversation that had nothing to do with the Sky-Storm match or basketball in general. It was later explained that the sounds weren’t actually from Real people, but from dialogues in Big Bang Theory that played in the background.

Now that everything has been cleared up, Angel Reese took to X (the social media platform formerly known as Twitter) to respond to the hilarious moment that left everyone looking in amazement.

“I was shocked. 😭🤣,” Reese wrote in a post Monday.

Angel Reese continues to shine in rookie WNBA season

Although the Sky suffered a double-digit loss to the Storm, there was no denying that Reese played a great game and put in an incredible effort. The former LSU Tigers star finished the game with 17 points and 14 rebounds, extending her double-double streak to 13 games, which is now a WNBA record. She also added four steals and a block while shooting an efficient 8/15 from the field against the Storm.

Reese leads the league in rebounding with 11.9 boards per game and is averaging 14.1 points, 1.9 assists and 1.5 blocks per game. Despite being a rookie, Reese is already one of the best players in the league. What’s scary is that she still has a lot of room to grow.

Drafted seventh overall by the Sky in the 2024 WNBA Draft, Reese has not only played a huge role for Chicago on the court, but can also be credited with the dramatic increase in attention in women’s basketball. Her rivalry with Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark and a game to back up her colorful personality keep people paying constant attention to her and the league.

Reese and Sky still want to create consistency

Chicago has yet to win three games in a row in the 2024 campaign. The Sky nearly did it for the first time on Sunday, but their two-game winning streak was snapped by the Storm. Before that game, Chicago defeated the Atlanta Dream and Storm on Tuesday and Friday, respectively. Their latest loss to Seattle marked the third time this season that the Sky have failed to follow up a two-game unbeaten streak with a win.

Despite their struggles, the Sky are still firmly in the thick of the playoff race. The Sky’s 8-12 record is good for eighth place in the WNBA going into Tuesday. Ahead of them are Clark and the Fever with a 9-13 record. Right behind Chicago are the Dream with a 7-13 ledger.

Chicago’s offense could use some improvement to get the team going. The Sky are just 10th in the league with 98.0 points per 100 possessions. Additionally, Chicago has the worst effective field goal percentage (45.2%) and true shooting percentage (49.5%). Their defense, however, is much more respectable, as they give up just 100.2 points per 100 possessions — fifth best in the WNBA.

Reese and Sky will try to get back on track next Wednesday with a home game against the Dream.
