Former WNBA MVP and New York Liberty forward Breanna Stewart has marveled at the growth of her teammate, All-Star guard Sabrina Ionescu.
Stewart feels Sabrina Ionescu’s willingness to improve sets her apart from other WNBA ballers, per UPROXX’s Martin Rickman.
“I think Sab is someone who wants to be great and wants to learn how to continue to grow and build that. She’s receptive. One of the biggest things I’ve seen from her is that understanding of how to get better. What she does on the court speaks for itself, but she’s not content with where she is. I think that’s it. Each year she’s getting better, she’s getting more comfortable, she’s getting healthy, she’s learning how to take care of her body in this league,” Stewart said.
“One of the biggest things I’ve seen from her is that understanding of how to get better. What she does on the court speaks for itself, but she’s not content with where she is. I’m really trying to instill in her that next play mentality. When things happen, get over it. Wins. Losses. Just go. Just keep going,” Breanna Stewart added.
“Yes, see what you did wrong, learn from it, but keep going. If you get stuck down there, it’s going to be hard to come back up,” Stewart concluded.
