To say that Chamique Holdsclaw is a great basketball player is an understatement. When you look at her stats, the success she has had is astonishing. She spent her college career as part of the Tennessee Volunteer team that won three back-to-back National Championships. She was picked first overall in the WNBA draft and selected as Rookie of the Year later that season. To top it all off, she was a member of the gold medal winning USA Women’s Basketball Team. But there is so much more to Chamique’s story. She was raised by her grandmother, and since her passing continues to celebrate the person that she credits with so much of her success.
Erin Coleman of WSB-TV sat down with Chamique to bring her story to the blog through this video interview.
